I have been brought up in a family of business leaders and I have therefore believed that becoming a leader involves identifying your strengths and weaknesses, this challenges individuals to equip themselves with the right skills. As a team leader in a local company, I have been made to believe that effective leadership is based on credibility, integrity, relationships, and vision. The aim of the group is to expand internationally and hence the main challenge is to address cross cultural issues involved in managing employees from various cultures. As a team leader, I think the leader should select the best leadership styles to use to achieve our goals. Having read books by Kouzes and Posner (2011) and Blue (2011), I have understood the important of building credibility in leadership. I believe that credibility springs out from a leader’s traits such as honesty, respect, well skilled, competence, and accountability. As indicated by Michael Porter in a theory of competitive advantages of nations, the competitive advantage of companies is influenced by the capabilities and credibility of the leaders. The leaders’ credibility is gained through skills and hence I have undertaken leadership courses in the university and hence I am well skilled on the best skills to employ in different cases. I believe that competitive advantages are achieved through skills and clear vision held by leaders. Therefore my vision for the team and its accomplishments is more ambitious than my predecessors. By being visionary, I would enable the company to acquire and retain one or more value chain activities so that we may allow great control and reduce the disadvantages of dealing with new partners as suggested by the internationalization theory (Xerri & Sen2016). I am a good communicator who knows how to verbalize my goals, objectives, and dreams. Since communication is two sided, a leader should listen to the subordinates (Ihlenfeldt 2011). I measure leadership efficiency on the level of relationship leaders have with the subordinates. I highly value working together and improving relationships with team mates. I may not always like a person we work with, but I am able to put dissimilarities aside and focus on developing a productive working relationship.
