Tutor description

Leadership is multi-dimensional, not one-dimensional. Leadership sometimes infers one person is at the top of a hierarchical-vertical system. However, leadership should not be seen as just a linear structure, which in many cases is ineffective; it can be horizontal where the leader and the followers all play an important role in the creation and shaping of the organization.

Leadership sometimes infers one person is at the top of a hierarchical-vertical system. However, leadership should not be seen as just a linear structure, which in many cases is ineffective; it can be horizontal where the leader and the followers all play an important role in the creation and shaping of the organization. True leaders recognize the gifts of their subordinates, leadership comes in degrees of good and bad but they are not mutually exclusive, and my increasing understanding of leadership helps me to clarify how transformational leadership is the most effective in an organization. These three concepts all contribute to this multi-dimensional prism of what I consider leadership.A true leader recognizes the gifts his employees bring to the organization (Block, 2009). He seeks opportunities for his subordinates that will help them build their potential and enrich the organization with the skills they possess. I have found that when I have been given the opportunity to present a skill set I exceed at, not only do I have increased self-confidence, but those around me feel the effects, too. In my LEAP Drama Club, I shine. Because my gifts are put on the table, my students feel the energy I bring and it motivates them to want to show me
