      A) The Gap: I know I have the God given ability to motivate and encourage. I look for the opportunity to always uplift others and to leave people, things and situations better than I find them. As we strive for excellence and a higher standard there is no room for boredom or discouragement because we tend to reach farther as we progress in servanthood.
      B) The Fit: I really ask God to search me as the 139th Psalm is a scripture that is very important to staying in line with the guidance of the Holy Spirit when attempting to lead people and complete a project. At times I desire to approach opportunities that require skills that I don’t have or that are not developed yet.
      C) Feedback: I take what others say about my performance or service seriously. Of course it takes surrounding yourself with mentors and supporters that have your best interest in mind. It’s important that they are also honest with you when things are not good.
      D) Parallel Contact: I am always trying to network with others outside of my immediate service environment. It is important that we expand our territory to include all Christian efforts and remember that we are all in the same body of Christ.
      E) The Gut: I pray each day that the Lord tunes my ear in to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

      Of the 5 principles: Gap, Fit, Feedback from others, Parallel context, and Gut, I have a gap that falls under the third level, Gap so large there is an echo. In simpler terms that means that there is a large distance between where I currently am and where I want to be in terms of my goals and overall character. When it comes to “Fit”, I have no idea as to where I fit in terms of my skills and overall character. I don’t have many in which I can rely on for feedback that is honest and helps me to strive to be better, but I do have at least one person who I trust in fairly well to help me grow better and do better. In regards to ” Parallel context”, I am not aware of how my peers are doing in comparison to me, as well as I am currently unaware of what can be done to better grasp the situation I am in due to the lack of social conduct between me and my peers towards our betterment and plans for the future. Finally, in regards towards my “Gut”, I often choose to ignore my gut feeling unless its a rather strong feeling. Most cases when I have followed my gut it has helped me out but then there are cases that when I do trust my gut it on causes trouble. I believe I need to get a better grasp on my gut feeling and what it is actually trying to guide me towards.

      My leadership in terms of these five different capacities is mixed. On one hand, I am able to look at my “gap” and see value in it, I see something I need to strive for and in need of filling no matter how big. My desire to take feedback from others is healthy as I do want to hear the opinions of others so that I can voice my own through decision making and general common sense. Parallel context is fine as I tend to listen to other people in my position and judge how they work and ask them for advice to implement it into my own style. My main issue is the “gut” as I tend to not trust it too much or worry about making a mistake if I go with my gut feeling as I feel more comfortable asking others on what I should do next or what my judgement call should be.

      I believe that I was just recently put into a leadership role that is perfect for me. I am blessed to have leaders above me that will be honest with me whether it be good or bad. I am working on being a stronger leader and teacher to people that are under me because I know it’s my job to help them become better leaders. As far as my gut, the Lord has made it quite clear this is where I am supposed to be. I love every aspect of it.

      With leadership there are five categories: the “gap”, the “fit”, feedback from others, parallel context, and your “gut”. My leadership under those would be described as this. The “gap” i know when something needs to stop or when im bored and when to fix that. Im currently at a job that ive worked for over a year and a half and ive realized that its not worth in anymore because the pay isnt high and with my talents and abilities i would be able to get more somewhere else and not have as much stress. If i get bored of something i usually fine tweak it or find something else to do and then come back to it. The “fit” for me is my abilities im a fast paced and hard worker. I work on the things that i need to improve on myself like my patience and scoial skills. I know i fit somewhere when i see for myself how the work environment is and how i impacted it. Feedback from others for me is critical for me to grow in life. Whether im doing something wrong and it needs to be corrected or im doing something right and in return get a compliment or praise. Anything that i do in life is not going to be perfect because im not perfect but it’s important to fine tweak that and become the best me that i can and put out the max of the best i can 100% each time. Parallel context.. Your “gut” is how i deal with a situation and make up my mind on what to do about it. How to deal with it in a manner that is appropriate and efficient. If i feel that something is wrong go to someone about it to get their input.
