Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on oprah winfreys six pillars for leadership Paper must be at least 1750 words. Please, no plagiarized work! Through the application of the six pillars of character, this paper will prove that a critical part of Oprah’s success is due to her spectacular ethical character-driven leadership.
According to Johnson (2008), character is the inherent complex of attributes that determines a persons moral and ethical actions and reactions. In fact, character is the most basic qualities that make a leader competitive. There are a lot of ways that can enable us to understand factors that makes a leader a competitive one. Normally, the leadership skill of a person who is very influential is based on six pillars known as: (1) trustworthiness. (2) respect. (3) caring. (4) responsibility. (5) fairness. and (6) citizenship (Lussier, 2003).
The six pillars that support character-driven leadership, trustworthiness, care and respect for others were noticeable in the early stages of Oprah’s career. For instance: Oprah’s communication style demonstrates courage to open up and connect with others. During the past few years, she has been very consistent with her communication style. This quality enabled her to build impeccable reputation and trust to the general public (Sellers, 2006).
Oprah is an expert in communicating her ideas to her target audiences. Because of her ability to verbally speak out her thoughts, her target audiences could easily relate to Oprah especially with the topics she chooses to discuss in her talk show. Oprah usually based her talk show topics from her own personal experiences. For this reason, it is very easy and natural for her to open-up topics about her personal struggles in life. For instance: She could openly talk about issues related to physical or mental abuse, weight gain problems, racial discrimination, and how it is like to be in a broken home. .This makes her able to perform a valuable service around the globe (Koehn & Helms, 2005. Sellers, 2006).
