Read full description of the books:
Although this is a book for a leadership class I am taking in my graduate program, I am finding it really insightful when applied to my spiritual and personal life. I am seeing some places I thought as strengths end up being my weakness. I am only 4 chapters into it.
Most of my leadership experience has been in the realm of non-profit organizations, specifically in education and religion. Having more experience with people from a religious perspective is probably something not usually looked at in this MLIS program, but with my undergraduate work in religious Studies, and my personal spiritual life, has all accumulated into my current authentic self.
I have learned that I am a natural leader, but I have learned to be flexible and to stand behind what I know to be right. More importantly, as I discovered in retrospect after reading page 15 what “the greatest fulfillment in leading” is for me: Helping people explore their spiritual potential through information and support. I had not realized this up until now.
Another point made by the authors in this workbook concerned the “hazards” of my own development in authentic leadership; they outlined several destructive behaviors on page 19 which I could identify with, but one stood out immediately. I often feel like an imposter in responsible situations in work. I tend to worry so much about over-achieving that I sometimes forget the focus of the goal; I am also often in competition with myself versus others, trying to prove something. I felt some hope as it seems this isn't necessarily a bad trait to have, since it can be funneled into positive changes.
“Worrying about your abilities, questioning whether you can handle a new challenge by yourself, sometimes having to display public confidence when you have private doubts, or recognizing your need to develop additional areas of knowledge and skill can all be characteristics of a healthy, authentic leadership. It is when the doubt becomes your driving force that the problems begin” (p.20).
