Hitler was one of the greatest leaders of his time. The characteristics he demonstrated through his time of being chancellor were phenomenal. His tactics for control, his determination, and how he could manipulate all went into account when expressing how influential and prominent of a leader Hitler really was. Hitler was a man that liked total control over a situation, and to have no one else besides himself to have an option of becoming omnipotent. To do that he came up with one of his plans to ensure that only he had superior authority.
Its hard being a great leader, there were many leaders before us that we have to look up to and see what we have to do to do better than what they did. Qualities Leader possess to make things happen. Fredrick Douglass didn’t just wait around to see what would happen if he did this or if he did that. He took action to freeing all the slaves and writing a book about his life. Douglass wanted to change what he had grown up knowing his whole life.
“Character, in the long run, is the decisive factor in the life of an individual and of nations alike.” - Theodore Roosevelt. Americans today are in a character crisis considering now it's all about reaching for the goal but it doesn't matter how you succeed just matters if you succeed. So in other words, people cheat to be at the top instead of trying and learning how to perform it in the right way. Years ago, churches and schools would preach to have moral ethics, but nowadays it's barely ever taught; what is taught is that you have to succeed no matter how you did it.
The strengths of my personality type is that i'm decisive and see what needs to be done. Not many have the ability to remain resolute in conflict, leading the charge and being argumentative. These pretty much describes who I am as a person. I try to be a leader and see what needs to be done. I learn from experience and hands on actions.
In this article “FDR’s Body Politics” by Davis W. Houck and Amos Kiewe discusses about how a crippled man become the president in the context of the culture that elects. It is about Franklin Roosevelt understood that a politician is not able to control his own body would be perceived as unable to control the body politic. While giving his speeches, he was physical bearing with it when delivering them. He tried to project robust health for himself while imputing disability, weakness, and even disease onto his political opponents and their policies.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected president in a time of economic instability. His campaign approach was to be appealing to as many as possible while addressing the needs of the United States. The divide between the two political parties made it impossible for any to address the growing economic problems, therefore Franklin’s gain “was largely due to the increasing seriousness of the Depression” (Daniels, 92). Roosevelt was an accomplished Senator and a member of the Democratic Party. Later perspectives of his campaign describe his act as seeking to “appear as the fair, impartial arbiter,” this gave independent voters more confidence in him while still keeping a clear agenda on the issues (Daniels, 96).
Today, leadership is considered to be more art than science. Equally observable is that those who engage in leadership invoke a variety of leadership styles and traits that can vary greatly, and yet can be equally successful in a variety of situations. No one could deny the tremendous leadership skills of Martin Luther King, but at the same time, for example, do not highlight the skills and success of General Schwarzkopf in crushing the army of enemies. As is generally known, the personal motives affect the leadership preferences. For example, some people choose adventurous and strict leadership style, while the others prefer peaceful and continuous.
I’m going to start with a definition of adversity. Adversity is difficulty and misfortune. In the following paragraphs are examples of people who had diversity and a quote about adversity. And how they worked through it. In almost any example of an adversity the thing that keeps people going for their loved ones.
Albert Einstein asserted “adversity introduces a man to himself” because in hard times you get to know yourself better and know what you’re capable of doing. Everyone has some kind of talents that are hidden which are brought out when they face adversities. But some people may think why is it only brought out when we we face adversities; however, i believe that whether we like it or not adversities are a part of our life and it is our duty to overcome them. Just like how the Roman poet Horace stated adversity has the effect of eliciting talents which in prosperous circumstances would have lain dormant. I agree with Horace because our inner potentials are brought out only when we face difficulties and misfortunes in life because adversities gives the opportunity to build a character with our inner hidden potentials to overcome our adversities.
A simple definition of leadership is that leadership is the art of motivating a group of people to act towards achieving a common goal. Being a leader does not refer to a straightforward job; however, it requires overcoming obstacles, handling competing agendas, and working with limited resources. Great leaders have brought their nation in prosperity and order, whereas incompetent leaders led the nation in ruins and made their people suffer and die. But first, what kind of person is a great or a good leader, there are two types of goodness which are morally good and a good leader in the sense that they stay in power. From my perspective an effective leader is a morally good leader; in addition, he should stay in power.
Theodore Roosevelt set the nation on the path to growth that would last throughout the 20th Century. By the time Roosevelt left office he had forever changed the influence of the presidency making him one of the best US presidents through protecting the environment, passing a safety act, and settling a strike. Roosevelts motivation and perseverance helped him accomplish so much in his time in office. First off Roosevelt entered the White House with a broad knowledge of government and excellent leadership skills. He negotiated a settlement to the anthracite coal strike.
Theodore Roosevelt was a visionary leader, he was able to create a pressure for changeand motivate those around him to achieve a lofty goal. These are traits that I would like toemulate. One instance where I was not able to do this occurred recently. Working incommunications, technologies and requirements are constantly changing. A few peers andmyself decided we needed to revamp our process for new communications requirements.
