Leadership and how to deal with people who

Leadership
has been defined in many ways by many different people. Perhaps the most
impactful description that I have encountered is that I can affect more people
as a servant leader. I believe a person that humbles themselves to become a
servant of today, is actually positioning themselves to become a leader of
tomorrow, and can have an effect on the business they are in.

            The knowledge I hope to gain comes
from the idea that I should be willing to support the greater good even if it
means temporarily sacrificing myself or my ideas. It embraces the concept that
meeting the needs of others is what allows communities and businesses to reach
their full potential. The skills I hope to gain involve being able to go above
and beyond to collaborate and achieve what really doesn’t have a direct benefit
to myself.

            Working at  global company allowed me to see that in order
for me manage such talent,  I need to
have a more worldly view of business and how to deal with people who in some
ways are different from myself. Presently I am positioning myself to advance in
the executive program at work and in doing this, my future goal is to be able
to take on any opportunity anywhere in the world.

            I have some international business
experience due to the fact that many of the components we use at work are made
or manufactured in different countries. My company has many manufacturing
plants in Mexico, and I travel there multiple times a year to ensure things are
being produced as expected. I also travel to China and India to visit some of
the manufacturing plants that supply components necessary for our products.

            I know I will have successfully
achieved my goals/objectives by understanding Servant Leadership is the
heart-beat of the philanthropic world. It’s in the wave of individuals who
generously give monetary support to those that dedicate their professional
career to the cause. It’s in both the tireless teams who organize and plan the
day and those who wake up early to attend and participate. At this time of
year, it’s especially appropriate to share the powerful words from one of our
greatest Servant Leaders, Martin Luther King, Jr. – “Life’s most persistent and
urgent question is, ‘what are you doing for others?’
