Implementation of a theory
reading about a leadership theory is very interesting and useful, however, people tend to depend on intuition when leading without focusing on executing the knowledge gained from a certain theory. To be able to implement it there are two main useful points to support it. First it is useful to create leadership requirement from a certain case and thematically link it to a certain characteristic of a theory. This will help to envision what has to be done in major situations to achieve a certain desired outcome. Secondly, continuous self assessment can help improve the leadership skills when compared against organizational needs. This self assessment and reflection can help drive performance to a level suitable to drive organizational performance through it.
The importance of this concept is that theory is different from practise and improving the leadership skills can play a significant role in organisational growth. This awareness will make a leader in charge of developing his/her performance up to a suitable level.
In my future career, i intend to use TFL theory and based on the engineering projects i get i can construct leadership requirements to drive my team performance and link it to the main characteristics. I can then develop my self by self assessment against the projects outcomes and departmental needs. Moreover, i can use the individualised consideration to view my current leadership standing from my followers perspective.
