The Thinker…

This week I have been doing some work with our new school leaders for the year. We did a lot of thinking and talking about values. Although these were based on gospel values this discussion was pertinent to any group.

Leaders embrace values, values in turn influence you as a leader.  The stronger the value system the more strongly leaders can be empowered and the more deeply leaders can empower followers. The transformational dynamic that mutually empowers leaders and followers involves, wants and needs, motivation and creativity, conflict and power. But at its heart lie values.

Values strengthen the whole fabric of leadership by helping sustain the mobilization and deepen the empowerment of followers during competition and conflict. It is during this time that our true values rise to the top

Values strengthen the leaders capacity to reach out to wider audiences and to gain support for broader arrays of values and for value systems and ultimately empower leaders by giving them a foundation to lead.

    I agree with your article. And the statement that struck me was “Leaders embrace values,values turn influence you as a leader”. Being a leader entails a lot of values, and using this values you make you an effective leader.
