6. What is leadership in the workplace? Leadership in the workplace is significant in today's business community. There are many definitions for leadership. My definition of leadership is a person who solves problems. One who is empathetic. One who takes charge and takes responsibility. One who sets an example for others to follow. Hans writes about professional happiness in his book. Happiness might be defined as doing something one loves, with excellence. As a person with type A personality, I am aggressive, hard driven, impatient, intolerant, and strive for perfection and success at almost any cost without fail. It is for that reason that I completed my Ph.D.; worked for long hours, was divorced several times, and raised three children alone with one wife. I, in my past life, was a bureaucrat. I was an educator, law enforcement worker in every area of the criminal justice system. Today, I am an Assistant Sociology Professor, writer, administrator, manager, and a vanguard for new ideas to assist an ever-changing organizational workplace. To me, leadership is the ideal leader who supports and leads his subordinates. He gives orders and takes them, he gives constructive criticism to his unit of command.
