A personal leadership statement
Cortés Julio, Evelyn Gisella | 2020-11-28
There is no universal definition of leadership because of different perspectives stated by different authors, organizations, and societies across the world and throughout time. Despite the differences in opinion, these sources share a similar thought in the idea that they see leadership as a process through which a person influences and leads the actions of a united team to achieve a common goal. One clear example of this thought is Gibb's statement “leadership is not a fixed attribute of personality but is a function of the group aims and values, and of the organization and techniques available for reaching a goal” (1947, p.3).
