September 27th Cohort Meeting
Name: Why Does Leadership Matter? Relational and Servant Leadership
3 things I learned:
- I learned who my mentor is, and started to get to know them better.
- Another thing I learned was the five components which make up the relational leadership theory, which includes purposeful, inclusive, empowering, ethical, and process-oriented.
- I also learned that our group has lost several members, we started with eleven and we are now down to six.
The trait that I connect with the most is 'listening'. The reason I feel like I connect with this most is because, I believe everyone has a voice. Sometimes people may not feel like they have a voice, because all they hear is everyone else's voice. With this in mind, I believe it is the leaders responsibility to make sure everyone feels like they have a voice. A leader that I see possessing servant leadership qualities is Gandhi. After meeting my peer mentor I'm excited to get to know them better and become good friends with them. :)
The thing I was looking most forward to about the retreat was getting to know the other members a lot better, which entailed learned about their lives.
