Bravery, cleverness, and determination are three traits a good leader has. In Homer’s epic “The Odyssey,” Odysseus, the hero in the story, is trying to return home to Ithaca after his victory in Troy. On their way back home, Odysseus and his men hurt the cyclops, Polyphemus, and angered his father, Poseidon. With a god angry at them, Odysseus and his men had to overcome many obstacles. These obstacles led them to strange islands that had goddesses and dangerous creatures. Odysseus used bravery, cleverness, and determination to be a good leader and get his men through all these dangerous obstacles. Odysseus is a good leader as seen through his bravery, cleverness, and determination.
The war is like a cancer, spreading a lot of death. But according longtime Scientific American writer John Horgan (2014) the `war and cancer differ in at least one crucial way: whereas cancer is a stubborn aspect of nature, war is our creation`. As long as there is more than one person, there is more than one opinion and a different understanding of how things should go. It is just of matter of time when the disagreement and conflict may break out. When we look back to the history, for example last four centuries every age has had its own big war, beginning with 17th century and Thirty years’ war and ending with 20th century and WW I and WW II. However, modern society has become more humane and most attempts to solve conflicts are political
“What other bond, than secret Romans that spoke the word, and will not palter?” I believe that Brutus and the Conspiracy should go to the capital and kill Caesar, and they should do what they had planned to do. Why should they? For the Romans to have a good place to live, pride, and confidence for their country. Caesar should not be crowned king, Caesar should not become the leader of the Roman people. The leader should be someone who cares about the people, someone who is honorable and understands that these people are important and need a good leader.
I am Poseidon, god of the seas. In this story, I will talk about my life and my adventures. I rule the seas with my all powerful trident. Millenias ago my father, Cronus, swallowed me and my siblings, Demeter, Hestia, Hera,and Hades. Zeus fought Cronos in a great battle, after much time Zeus finally defeated Cronos. My siblings and I were finally free. My two brothers and I split up the world into three parts. I have the Sea and the Earth, my symbols are the horse, trident, and the bull. Zeus is the ruler of Olympus and the skies and Hades is the ruler of the underworld.
In Homer’s The Odyssey, Odysseus repeatedly shows that he is polytropos, for as Zeus says “There is no mortal half so wise”(3). Using his wits, Odysseus gets him and his men out of several sticky situations in the Odyssey, proving his leadership through his actions that save the lives of his crew member. On the other hand Odysseus’ streak of constantly outsmarting challenges, goes to his head, and unfortunately causes Odysseus to develop a hubris. His pride at times makes him arrogant, believing that he always knows best, which leads to the untimely demise of his crew. While Odysseus proves to be good leader by saving his crew from trouble with his wits, he is ultimately a bad leader because he refuses to listen to advice.
Being a leader involves many different characteristics. A leader must set the example for all others in the group, because if they are to show up late to practice, there isn’t a reason that any of the other members should not do the same. A leader must take risks for the benefit of the group as well as make sacrifices for it. Becoming the leader of the group requires for them to be the most dedicated. They must work harder and not be afraid to lead the group. A leader must be willing and ready to not only give orders but receive them.
"A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way". During the whole story Odysseus was showing to get back to Ithaca. Odysseus saves his men many times in different places. For example, he saved his men on the island of the Lotus Eaters and sacrificed himself when he listened to the Sirens.Odysseus was a strong leader and did everything he could to help his crew because in the Lotus Eaters he brought his men back and he protected his men from the Sirens.
“ A leader is the individual engaging others in this evolutionary activity” (Defining Leadership Language and Guiding Models 14). There are two kinds of people in this world, leaders and followers. Leaders take the initiative and guide a group of people, including followers, to make a change. Sometimes leaders come across obstacles, but they work hard and do not give up. Leaders believe their actions will make the world a better place. It is no secret that our world can be a cruel place sometimes, nor to that humans have an innate need to feel superior to others. Situations like this, where leaders feel the need to pursue what is right, we see injustices need to come to an end. Rosa Parks one day refused to move to the back to the bus, where African Americans were to be seated. Her act of disobedience initiated a major change. A leader takes the initiative to make this happen. Rosa Parks is the perfect definition of a leader.
It is a leader’s responsibility to serve others and inspire them to live fuller lives. Throughout the past few years, I have worked to become the best leader possible in hopes of enacting positive change.

Unfortunately, all of the members of the Apache tribe wanted to be the hero, and constant arguments kept breaking out over who would lead the group into battle. They were tearing themselves apart and became very disorganized.
QUESTION 1: War is an event that has been a part of world events since the beginning of time. It has defined the geographical boundaries of counties. It has shaped the United States and what it America has become today: the Civil War, War of 1812, Independence War, Spanish War, and World War I. The reasons or causes for war have been embodied in what is known as the “just war theory.” Jon Dorbolo of Oregon State University suggested that going to war “...is the basis on which nations seek to legally and morally justify going to war.” There are acceptable reasons why a nation will declare war. It deals with why nations go to war, and it pertains with the conduct of war. Scholars have identified two (2) reasons for the “just war” theory which are known as “Jus Ad Bellum” (the right to go to war) and “Jus In Bello” (the right conduct of war).
There are many leaders in the world, stories and movies. Each have a certain meaning of why they are there, and what they are supposed to accomplish. They become role models, Gods and idols. Beowulf, Achilles, and Gilgamesh they have many similarities and many differences. Beowulf is a strong fighter he goes and fights for the nation, he lives in so they don’t have to live in constant fear. Achilles is known as an Greek hero and who fought in the Trojan war, and was the top Homer’s Iliad warrior. Gilgamesh accepts his role as king and tries to be wiser and better. When he passes away the people come and mourn his life and miss him as an leader.
Behemoth gave an apologetic snort, but didn 't move unfortunately, instead beginning to prod at his master 's mouth. Amaimon sputtered angrily "B-Behemoth!? What are you doing!?" Behemoth didn 't wait to answer, or even wait for the earth King to calm down, shoving a plant into his moth and closing his mouth. Amaimon choked, trying to kick Behemoth off of him as his mouth was filled with herbs. Behemoth gave a shrill, commanding cry, clamping his paws over the earth king 's mouth. Amaimon screamed as best he could, but he couldn 't fight his familiar. The hobgoblin whined as claws tore at his arms, his child master scrambling to pull him off, yelling incoherently, but the demon didn 't let go, knowing this was for the best.
It was about to be midnight and Bilbo was cold and wet from the river. Bilbo found a fire in a nearby village and sat down next to it to get warm and dry. The village looked like any normal village. The houses were made out of mud and hay and there were huge farms. Suddenly, a girl came by and saw some trail of drippings. Her face looked frightened when she saw Bilbo’s footsteps. She thought that it was a ghost and started screaming for her mom and dad. Her face looked pale. Bilbo ran away from the fire and hid behind a house inside a bush. The bush made him feel itchy.He saw the parents rush towards their screaming daughter and see the trail of drippings and footsteps. They told her to go home while they went to tell the head. However, the
Rama combines the utmost care for his followers and an unflinching devotion to their welfare with utmost humility and respect for his followers. This is the mark of the servant leader who is more concerned about the followers than about themselves. Servant leadership consists of seven dimensions (Liden, Wayne, Zhao, & Henderson, 2008)all of which has parallels in Rama’s leadership behavior. Emotional healing entails being sensitive to the follower’s setbacks. Rama’s handling of Bharatha’s guilt and chagrin, Sugreeva’s sense of defeat and Vibheeshana’s gut wrenching feelings of having betrayed his brother are all examples. Creating value for community is seen in the way his impact makes the vanara sena volunteer to perform complex tasks
