a)

Autocratic Leadership

For this leadership, the leader has all the authority and control over decision making. The leader not only making decision, also monitor the progress of the follower and giving supervise to them. The advantage of this leadership are minimize the chance of mistake or accident happen and increase efficiency.

Transformational Leadership

This leadership are create a noble vision to work towards that inspires the followers, the leader are authentic in their interactions within the team to inspires and encourage the follow take action. Also the leader are focus on the professional of the team and each follower’s personal development to get better result, and the leader are encourage the team members use their imagination and talent to enhance team standard.

Paternalistic leadership

This kind of leadership the relationship between leader and the follower are mostly like the father taking care of his children. The follow are fully trust their leader, the relationship between this two are very strong. But follower under this leadership they can’t complete task independently and they are over reliant on their leader to make the decision.

Personally, my favor is Autocratic Leadership. I prefer the theory of the leader doing all the decision making and monitor all the others members. Because I’m more focus on the efficiency and avoid mistake happen. Also in my opinion the follower have to accurately follow the leader’s decision to make sure the stability of the team and to perform a great team work.

b)

I don’t prefer transformation leadership, because this leadership require the leader have to spent exact time to inspire the team members and giving space to let the team members have creative that may cause conflict within the team. For the paternalistic leadership, the leader are spent too much time on taking care the team members, even cause them can’t work independently. That is seriously affected the work efficiency of the team.

  • The first decision I made is went to Singapore study and live alone, it give me the opportunity to see the dickens in the wider world also how to survival in the wider world. Is the process for me grow up from a boy to a men, learned how to solve every situation will happen on real life without family support. Also, I had chance to work in many 5 star hotel in Singapore to learn how to deal with different kind of peoples, to give me a well social skill. Manage the event function provide me the skill with how to become a leader, since I was climb up from the bottom I do know what is every team members thinking to make me easily control the event.
  • The second decision was after I come New Zealand and take this course. After few placement, I feel a great satisfy when I can really help someone with my own hand, it give me something I can’t have in my perverse life. Don’t like donate money to some origination I never heard about, I feel meaningful when I use my own hand to give support to other people. And I feel I find my life purpose.

6)

The second memory made me become a person can easily adapt with any new environment within a short time, I don’t feel helplessness and become an independent person. The third memory let me become a thick-skinned person with contact with people and also provide me the experience to be a leader.

  • Learn from mistake: the best teacher is myself, I learn new things from every mistake I made.

8)

I have compared me and the two leaders with the value, belief, attitudes, metaprograms. Traits, skills, and strategies to analysis the thing I have to learn from them and improve myself to achieve a good leadership on me.

From the value I think I have learn from Gandhi with love but never hate, it is most difficult value from him and most precious point on him, he forgive everyone who try to harm him and reach a level normal people can’t reach. i also have some common point between this two leaders, such as live in present and be kind.

For the beliefs, me and this two leaders are both belief all the religious are equal and non-violent. But I think I still can learn the spiritual value in suffering, it bring them closer to Christ. I don’t have much experience been suffer with lack of food or physical pain. I living in a material well-being life, I can’t really go into their world and I think that is what I lack to be a good leader.

This two leaders are both have the self-sacrifice attitudes, they sacrifice and spent most of their life to helping other people for not benefit, in my opinion people can do that is a true leader, and me and this two leaders are all optimistic with any situation and problem, we had strong belief to help us solve the problem.

The metaprograms between me and the two leaders are mostly same but I feel I have to enhance my thinking about others but not only myself.

On their traits I also have some common point which same with them, such as Independent of thought and Remorseless with the task for self, but what I lack of is an attic faith, I always easily give up because many material temptation.

For the personal skills we had common point such as being a good listener and always be smile. But it is really hard to forgive for me, that what I feel I’m lack of.

For the strategies, I do have align with them like learn from mistake. And I feel continuous learning and improvement the most thing I need now, I’m still young and not enough knowledge and experience. Learning is the very important part for me to become a good leader.

9)

I came from China, my culture background are traditional Chinese culture which are emphasize on etiquette and connotation culture. The first thing we have learn is modest and modestly decline. It is difference with the culture of those two leaders. Mother Teresa was born in Skopje, Macedonia and she affect a lot by Indian culture since she spent most of her life in Indian. Also she is a devout Catholic, she believe God will provide everything for her to help those poor, her faith give her very strong will and confidence to made todays Mother Teresa. Mohandas Gandhi was born in India but receive British education, he had very strong great man leadership, and his idea are far sighted. Those all are the factor of he become a great leader. For this two leaders, they had some common point. They both are think all the religious, color and level of people are equal and both of them spent their life to help peoples. Another common point is both of them are having a very strong leadership, people gathering, and identity and support them.

PART B

1) My current state

Currently I’m working as a support worker, and I do had experience of to be a leader. I have few personal strengths to be a leader such as, a strong time management with my schedule to make sure I always complete task on time, good plan making for each task to achieve the best result and good monitor skill to encourage and supervise team member compete each task. But I also have some weaknesses that might influence my approach to leadership like lack of communication skill to make effective communication with team member, and play autocratic because I always feel I’m the one who are right, it might let other team members feel dissatisfied. Last one is lack of conflict management skill, when conflict happen I always feel agitated and play bad attitude with other members. Since I like to joke with my friends, sometime they will feel I’m not a reliable person even sometime I try to help. Also they feel me are stubborn and not positive all the time. Another side, my friends all like to talk with me, because I’m a good listener and I always can solve problem with different angle, also because I’m a very upbeat person.

2) My desired state

I feel if I want to be a good leader, first I have to have a good attitude during the task progress and encourage other members to have a good working environment, also I have to improve my conflict manage skill to make me more driving the team. Last, I have to enhance my communication skill to make an effective communication with other members. I think if I could achieve the three task above I’ll be a leader who are up to standard, also it will enhance the quality of my life to make it more efficiency and to make my friends feel more comfortable while stay with me.

Short Term Outcome

  • Positive attitude: to improve my performance during the team work
  • Conflict Manage Skill: to reduce the conflict between others
  • Communication Skill: to make a clear information exchange, make work more efficiency.

Long Term Outcome

  • Positive attitude: to enhance my life quality.
  • Conflict Manage Skill: dealing with people with no conflict, mutual understanding
  • Communication Skill: bring this skill into my future career, achieve it more successful

3) My strategies

  • To taking the course of how to work more positively to enhance myself
  • Give more understand to other people when conflict occur and learn how to transpositoal consideration.
  • Take the course of how to have effective communication with other people and enhance my skill.
  • Focus on work for every day, and be passion on work
  • Not conflict happen between friend, if happen try to solve peacefully
  • Share some interest story to friend with using effective communication skill.

I might ask tutor’s help with the skill knowledge or suggest, also internet is a good way to help with the gaining information. Or can read the book I like to keep self in a good mood.
