Because most of his life he didn’t know how to read, he had to adapt. He was also down to earth and hardworking. George was very honest,too. George knew how to act and did everything above and beyond. He vas a millionaire in character even though he was very poor.
Another reason why I think George Washington had tremendous abilities in leadership is because, he is a proud man. He stood up to general Gates when he said he couldn’t have the men win. Also he has tremendous abilities because he stood up for what he believed in. When the Hessian Colonel Rall got shot he did not want to visit him because he believed that he should not
William Jennings Bryan was a man that strongly believed in his faith and made sure to use it throughout his life and legacy. “Only Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson had a greater impact on politics and political culture during the era of reform that began in the mid-1890s and lasted until the early 1920s”. This thesis begins the book and begins William Jennings Bryan’s legacy in the United States. Even though he ran for presidency three times he still gained popularity among the country. He was famous for his radical ideas and his eloquent speeches.
George Washington and Gilgamesh are both very strong leaders of their people. Leadership means to guide and inspire the people of the society toward a direction in a way that will better the society as a whole. A leader will also
To begin, the reader sees the impact of greed through George Murchinson’s behavior. George always acts like he deserves to be respected because he is very rich, and members of the Younger family have pointed this out many times. His possession of money has altered his ego to where he is disliked by many people. Through this transformation, Hansberry shows the reader that greed can change people to be self-centered and despised. Another way the negative impact of greed is shown is through Willy Harris’s betrayal.
Patton the Emotionless Leader General George Smith Patton Jr., renowned World War II leader, executed leadership in a cold, unimaginative style. He lacked the emotional intelligence of truly great leaders, yet, remains one of the most accomplished American leaders of the war. He came from a highly regarded military pedigree. Due to an unknown handicap, he needed to learn at a much harder rate than his father and grandfather. Despite all these problems, George Patton rose through the ranks using an ingratiating style of leadership to become a doctrine writer, master trainer, and recognized general that succeeded during the Battle of Bulge.
This is also shown when compared to Bill Gates. Colvin emphasized that , “It’s clear that Gates’ early interests led directly to Microsoft. The problem is that nothing in his story suggests extraordinary abilities” (32). Steve Jobs put in alot of hard work because he knew what he was trying to accomplish not because he was borned with extraordinary skills. This particular example proves Colvin’s theory of great
Volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity in today’s world is the new normal. The willingness to get out of our comfort zone, and learn continuously is the need of the hour. And for that, a strong and resilient character is the foremost requirement. Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard and started a failed first business with Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen called Traf-O-Data. Even though this idea didn’t work, Gates’ later idea did, leading
Though being the leader he was he knew what to do and how to handle things. In big deal companies there are many people such as Beowulf and I couldn't agree more with John Finley and Tom Loughman when they stated, “He is absolutely fearless and supremely confident in his own abilities.” which you see in many CEO’s today. To compare to my father once more I can really see that this epic poem can relate to today’s world. I was very surprised that they got something out of his character and connected it to situations that are still happening. Overall, I agree with what John Finley and Tom Loughman stated in their article.
Winston Churchill was one of the best leaders of the modern age. Churchill was honest in his actions, quick and knowledgeable in his decision, and persistent in all he did. These qualities made him an effective leader. The same comes true for Aeneas. Aeneas was honest and followed through on his promise to found Rome, decisive when it came time to kill king Turnus and persistent in following the destiny he was called for, thus being effective in his leadership.
