In Lord of the Flies, by William Golding, leadership is an important element. Without it, everything would be chaotic and unorthodox. Jack, as a leader, helps everyone to take care of the problems they are facing in the moment; and that is why I would follow him over anyone else in the novel. His actions resemble what coaches would look for in their athletes, but less extensive. For instance, a football coach focuses on the week they are on instead of thinking about finals. Leadership is a vital characteristic in order to live. It is not something that everyone has, but it is something that everyone needs. Oprah Winfrey is one who possesses great leadership qualities today.
Today the world is so focused on how we dress and how we do stuff in the society. I am going to talk about leaders who are effective in today’s society but in the book Lord of the Flies too. I am also going to mention who I would have followed if I was in the book Lord of the Flies.

In the novel lord of the flies by william golding i think he tries to show the difference in the types of leaders that Ralph and Jack are.

Good leaders have many qualities that sent them apart from others. Confidence, commitment, and Intuition are just a few that make a good leader. There are many people in today’s society that have these qualities, but there is only one that really portrays a strong leader in the book Lord of the Flies by William Golding.
In William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, after a plane crashes on a deserted island, a group of kids with no adult supervision on the island, the kid have to figure out how to survive and get rescued. Ralph is voted as leader of the group, because he seems like he looked the part and had good charisma. Ralph blows the conch shell to assemble all of the kids to see who survived and to discuss what to do next. At first we see that Ralph does show he can be a good leader by making a plan on how to get rescued and assigning jobs to other kids. But as the book progresses he slowly turns into a bad leader who does not have control over the kids, when he gets frustrated and cannot control the kids to do their jobs.
Acquiring leadership skills along with a strong character and the sense to serve others is vital. A leader should be resourceful, dependable, selfless, and a good problem solver. I have led in many ways- inside and outside of school. Last year as a tenth grader, I was class secretary for Class Council.
Jealous, immature, aggressive, hostile, emotionless. Are these things you would look for in a leader? The majority would say no, but it worked on the island for one reason.

Jack's leadership is powerful, he understands how to coerce others into following him and is exceptional at controlling his crowd. Take for example him leading the crowd of hunters, “Kill the pig. Cut her throat. Spill her blood” (Golding 56).
