DISCUSSION 1 (Ingrid)

I am completing my last three classes of Human Services after taking a much-needed
year break. I am an online seller and content creator. I am new to the content creator
life, and I must say I enjoy it. As I’m getting closer to completing my degree, I see that my
career expectations are changing. I’ve always wanted to work in the mental health field,
but I see that the pay where I live is not a livable wage. I may as well work at the nearest
retail store unfortunately. In order for me to pursue a career, most likely I would either
have to move or break into another career choice.

The leadership style that fits my personality is the Laissez-Faire style of leadership. In the
video, Coach Alexander Lyon (2021) states, “followers would do great if you just let
them do it.” As a former manager, I noticed when you give your team a task and
thoroughly explain how the task is to be done, the team tends to perform better. I know
this is not a preferred leadership style, but I really do believe under the right
management that it could work.

The best methods I use to combat stress and to avoid burnout is to do something that I
love and to prepare things ahead of time. For example, I coupon as a hobby so when I’m
stressed, I shop for the best bargain or help someone else find a good deal. I am an
online seller so if I have multiple orders, I usually prepare them the day before I ship so
that I can take my time and not stress. I also meditate and I don’t allow negativity in my
life. I’ve noticed once you’re at peace with yourself that you will have less stress in your
life.

DISCUSSION 2 (Tameka)

I am here on military orders and this is my last year. I have been in the Army for 19 years and it
has been a ride. I spent 3 years on active duty and the rest of my time has been spent in the army
reserves. While in the reserves I became a Baltimore City police officer, correctional officer, and a
Norfolk Sheriffs Deputy. I also worked at the post office for a short time so I have had plenty of
jobs that required a degree of administrative work. I have worked in administrative roles while
serving in the Army. I am in an admin role as an army recruiter. I have to use my laptop 99% of

the time. We use spreadsheets, Microsoft applications, and Army applications to input applicant
data. There is a lot of paperwork involved in my current position. I expect to be even more
proficient with admin when I graduate. I am hoping that I will be able to go into any new admin
job and be able to perform with minimal supervision and training.

The Pacesetting leadership style suits my personality. I do have high standards and I
expect people in the team to catch on to their assigned tasks at some point. “Leadership
is the art of guiding a team or organization through effective decision-making, setting a
vision, motivating members, and achieving collective goals with charisma and integrity”
(Simplilearn, 2023). I will also save those who are in trouble or need a little more
assistance. I tend to run when I feel stressed. I have run 9 Army 10 milers, a few 5k’s, a
triathlon, and a half marathon. Exercise helps me burn steam and clear my head. I am
focused on the task, and I leave all of the stress at the door of the gym. I also enjoy
taking my dog (Butters) to the park. I love how he is so happy out there and I forget
about all the stresses of work. I take time for myself and do a lot of self-care. get my
nails and feet done every two weeks and I take lunch breaks with my female coworker
so we can have girl talk.

DISCUSSION 3 (Tameka M)
I have two children, that are a world apart. My son is 28, and my daughter is 4 years old. I have
worked in long term care for over 20 years. I received my bachelor’s degree in health and human
services, from Ashford University, in 2019. In the future, I hope to continue to work in long term,
healthcare. I hope to use my knowledge to be a better resource for my clients. The leadership
style that I feel suit my personality is Transactional. Transactional leaders focus. on the
organization performance, meeting goals, and maintaining compliance. They utilize reward and
penalty systems to motivate their team. Burnout, this is something I have delt with in the past. I
had a difficult time trying to deal with burnout. Two years ago, I decided, I would make some
changes. First, I separated my time. Time managed was the key. I included myself in the time
schedule. Every day, I give myself, 30 Mins. after work. This is my transitional time, my time to be
alone with myself, and prepare myself to focus on my home life. During this time, I may take a
walk, or sit outside quietly, I have used this time for workout time as well. but I make sure I get
this time daily. I am currently still working on other changes, to help manage stress, for now my
30 mins, is it. I am looking forward to working with everyone, and best of luck to all on their
future endeavors.
