1. People do not need to possess the top title to achieve results and help others become productive because titles do not reflect traits or actions- you can still be productive and helpful to others without being the highest power.
2. Right now I am learning to lead by heading the advertising committee for my schools Me to We fundraiser (coffee house). An opportunity I will have to further develop my leadership skills is while working with my committee for the Adventure Trip.
3. I am prompted to follow someone else when they can take charge and make decisions while still considering the opinions, ideas, and feelings of the people around them.
4. A leader is valuable to an organization/committee because they can moderate conflicts, make decisions if consensus cannot be reached, provide motivation, and delegate tasks.
5. Yes, I believe that as you move up in an organization the weight of your responsibly increases because there are more people working ‘for’ you, and therefore more people you must lead.
6. The quote “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent” relates to allowing a title or position to limit your position because just like no one can make you feel inferior unless you allow yourself to feel inferior, no one can say you can’t lead others unless you believe you can’t lead others.
7. Although the reality for most people is that they will never be the CEO, they should not give up leading altogether because position has no effect on the quality or ability to lead, since titles do not reflect traits or actions and leading is entirely possible from anywhere in the organization.
