After completing training for work at the library I read books to get motivation. I had to look into leadership books. One book, The Tao of Personal Leadership by Diane Leher, made me realize something about the environment at work. I realize that I choose to see patterns of the group. Diane believes that we need to “see details that fit in larger patterns of significance .” This belief combined with my perspective with work considers so many cultural differences. I don’t have to be in the corner. With that said, my years of education and work helped define my characteristic perspectives. I learned to consider the other person. Personally, if I offer help that is a choice to accept.

Now professionally I believe that I can be a leader using my learned experience to show respect. The book I am reading will help me use my beliefs that I believe within my heart are the best. Keeping colleagues on task within the group is better than keeping colleagues out of the workings of the environment. What it takes to be a leader is consider the other people to play an active role in the environment. They can take control of the task. And no one gets shunned out of respect for one another. Everyone has a role in the house and that is to keep the structure. It eases the mind. That is personal peace.
