LDR-600 Topic 1 DQ 1 The concept of leadership as a “vocation” greatly distinguishes leadership from a job, career, or what one simply does for a living
The concept of leadership as a “vocation” greatly distinguishes leadership from a job, career, or what one simply does for a living. A vocation can be thought of as one’s calling. Vocation is often associated with the clergy or missionaries who feel called by a higher power to fulfill a specific purpose. Vocation is also a concept associated with careers like teachers, emergency responders, doctors, or other health care professionals who feel strongly compelled to dedicate their own lives to improving the lives of those whom they serve. Consider your own view of leadership. Discuss how this understanding of leadership as a vocation informs your understanding of the personal and moral commitments required of leaders. If leadership is not a job, but a calling, discuss the responsibilities leaders have towards their position, their organization, and their followers.
