RE: Week 6 Discussion

The leader that has had the most positive influence on me was my first supervisor within my current organization. She saw potential in people and developed those potentials. She was not threatened by anybody bettering themselves, so she encouraged self-development. When there were any issues with projects, there was a joint effort to resolve the issue. There was never finger-pointing, and her mentality was solution-oriented and not problem-oriented. She was competent, willing to listen, willing to learn, and led by example. Even though she was the epitome of professionalism, she built rapport by finding common ground and was always empathetic with personal issues.

She was a great listener. She was excellent at understanding the big picture and evaluating the content. When in meetings, she was organized and took notes with bullet points to refer back. She was able to summarize the meeting, provide analysis, and communicate the next steps. On a one-on-one basis, she gave her full attention and made me feel important. Her offering respect and trust made me want to strive to do better. She was a true leader.
