Leadership and Personal Brand
can be described as self-power and feeling to control things, people or events.
For one to be a leader, the person has to have self-confidence, positive, and
free minded to believe that he or she will achieve the leadership task.
Psychologists have also investigated how people with leadership skills should
carry themselves. I will thus discuss my position in the seven transformations
to leadership and prove that these transformations are in me and justify my
leadership brand capabilities.
Transformations of Leadership
prove these, we shall look at the following parts; the opportunist, the
diplomat, the achiever, the expert, the individualist, the strategist, the
alchemist (Intagliata, Ulrich, & Smallwood, 2000). In my understanding, I
will explain how I have made the transformations and what makes me feel a
capable person armed with leadership abilities.
person is termed an opportunist if he or she focuses on personal gains rather
than the expected achievements. It is wrong to take other people as competitors
instead of working partners. Most of these selfish leaders do not have
successful careers for long times but rather fail after a relatively short
period. A person believing to be on the right side even when corrected tends to
be a total failure in the community. It is disadvantageous to be under an
opportunist for you will never proceed in your life endeavors. Opportunists tend
to step on every individual.
one to be a diplomat, the person should be a positive minded person. A diplomat
recognizes their juniors and seniors and gives room for correction or new
ideas. However, it will be wrong if a diplomatic is lenient to correct mistakes
done by co-workers. This might encourage wrong doing and hence failures in
projects that are being done. Some negative cases include where seniors cannot
be corrected by diplomats thus encouraging harassment. One is only a diplomat
if what the person encourages is constructive.
a complete knowledge of a given task makes someone an expert. It is obvious
that experts deliver the best outputs ever in their jobs. They are considered
to hold managerial positions at all times. They only guide their juniors and
give directions at all times. Experts are however wrong sometimes when they
consider themselves superior and cannot be corrected at any time. One of the
experts can join hands with any other well-wisher because they consider
are the best measure for one to be called an achiever. The best manager creates
a positive environment and gives the best output in his job. An achiever is always
trusted in his job, and he is given most of the tasks to accomplish. An
achiever, however, is prone to competition from other individuals who can term
themselves as experts and will like to give advises to the achievers. Not all
successful persons are achievers, but some are just experts.
are bosses of their own. They take everything private and gives ideas for
themselves on how they need their organizations to run. Individualists do not
take anything light. They do not collaborate with any partners unless they are
just in their own categories and are willing to work with their commands. A
real individualist is the developer of their rules and does everything
regarding their own rules. Any outside rules set cannot affect them in any way
are people who come up with plans and guidelines that will enable individuals
hit the goals outlined. Strategist ensure the principles stated are followed
line by line until all the achievements are made. A good organization employs
strategists and plans for it to succeed. This will enable the company’s
performance to be known at all times. Strategists enable good relationship
between workers and customers. Hence good working environment.
is the ability to solve problems at their various levels. An alchemist
interacts with both the minors and the seniors and knows all the requirements
by both parties at all times. A good alchemist stands by the truth even if it
means losing friends. It is encouraging to stand alone for the success of the
less privileged in the society. Best alchemists are free minded and consider
themselves the best at individual levels at all times.
am still a student pursuing a Masters’ level. I consider myself to be a leader
who is best performing and ready to accomplish all tasks given by my lecturers
and tutors. I take education as a key factor to all my objectives in life, and
I cannot consider any other shortcut. I should sit down and know what I want to
be in life and all the things that I must consider to achieve these goals. It
is me who will benefit at the end as a great achiever.
I want to finish my course with the
best grades and knowledge that can enable me to be my own guider. As an achiever,
a diplomat, and an expert, I will wish to state a strategy that will help
develop leadership skills in me and come up with the most fulfilling methods.
It is with these that I will have made the best achievements in life and
demonstrated to be a leader.
to Building My Leadership Brand
involves developing and showing off qualifications you have. All these are
considered to be leadership brands. These involve nailing the prerequisites of
leadership, connecting your executive’s abilities to the reputation you are
trying to establish, and assessing leaders against the statement of leadership
brand (Rooke & Torbert, 2005). I will develop a strategy to accomplish all
the five steps as explained below.
involve coming up with the best strategies and mastering them. The organization
should be able to come up with methods that are always successful and easy to
understand by individuals involved. As a leader, I will come up with the best
strategies that are worker-friendly and making sure I am able to communicate
all matters to them (Ulrich & Smallwood, 2007). All communication channels
involved should be well stipulated.
executive’s abilities to the reputation being developed
is expected that employees develop specific skills to perform different jobs. A
good job is expected to outline its goals and set them well. By considering the
job being done, approaches to solving the problems should be well outlined and
stated. People with leadership talents should be made useful in a company. This
will encourage efficiency and best outcome ever at all times. These are
executive teams that are considered to be the best-producing manpower.

company cannot be rated to be the best if it doesn’t have e a customer friendly
environment. Leaders ranked the best should be recognized through customer’s
comments. A good working system should develop an opinion mechanism to allow
customers to give their feedback at all times. Assessment can be made by any
party for the goodwill of the organization. This can be through interviews and

best outputs at all times. We should come up with a strategic plan that will
ensure experience used is in relation to the kind of job being done. Customers

business suppliers. All things done should be for the good of the
Make my brand
a leader, it is expected that the way I see myself is the way my fellow members
see me. If I call myself determined, it should be in the minds of my seniors
and juniors that am really a focused person. A good leader should set out
objectives that are real and can be achieved at all times. An individual
observing a given leader should be confident that this leader is real and can
come up with what the feel they are lacking.
