1. I have always given 110% of myself whether I was an Administrative Assistant or a Nurse. I have never climbed the corporate ladder nor received promotions. Instead, I became the person to come to for help and answers. In my prior career, I made my managers and sales representatives look good in their positions thus they received the promotions. As a nurse, I am a believer in team work and when I am the charge nurse, keep my coworkers motivated and we help each other get through the shift. According to DelHousaye (2004), work challenges the workers creativity and gives them a sense of pride and accomplishment. Leaders need to communicate a job well done and offer assistance when needed.
Trust establishes credibility and is earned. Leaders with integrity inspire confidence in others because they can be trusted to do what they say they are going to do (Northouse, 1997).

2. I believe that hard work does allow you to have success. Very few people are fortunate enough to be born in a wealthy family or win the lottery. An example of hard work for me was deciding to go to nursing school. I know this was what I wanted to do as a career and felt lead that this is where I needed to be. I put a lot of hard work, sweat, crying and craziness into getting my degree and nursing license. I was having some serious personal issues and made it through. I took responsibility for my actions and used time management to get things done (DelHousaye, D., 2004). I was influential in my success because I was aware of what I needed to do. I was a good steward with my time. I worked with other students and showed empathy towards what they were going through as well. I also was humbled by the experience.
The secular view of leadership focuses more on the ability to delegate, showing confidence in yourself, and creativity versus responsibility, empathy and influence on others. The servant approach believes in working hard to stay at the bottom by contrast, the secular view works hard to stay at the top (DelHousaye, D., 2004). Showing servant leadership while in school was important to me. I served the other students I became close to by offering my time and efforts to study with them to help them succeed as well. We were there for each other when one would pass a test and the other failed. That was the beginning of my journey in nursing to continue to be humble and put others first. I feel great when I give and others benefit from this.
