Another example is when Odysseus, and his men are yet again on the threshold of demise by a whirlpool Heavyweight named Charybdis. Odysseus motivates his men once again that if they want to live, they have to keep rowing to escape Charybdis (783, book 12). This portrays Odysseus’ leadership by showing his men pep talk for survival. This more deeply illustrates Odysseus trait of leadership because he and his crew do not want to die
In Sophocles’ play Antigone and Niki Caros’ movie The Whale Rider, both Koro and Creon are considered the tragic hero because they were born at noble birth and have a fatal flaw, they undergo a reversal of fortune plus they have a tragic downfall, and they recognize their mistakes. To begin with, both characters Creon and Koro are considered to be born at noble birth meaning to occupy a high status. Creon is the king of Thebes, which authorizes him to be at high status. Everyone listens and obeys him because his people know that he will do what is best for them to live a peaceful life. Koro however, is not a king but is a leader of his tribe.
Odysseus and I both have demonstrated leadership. After their fierce encounter with the cyclops, Odysseus lead the men away safely with minimum casualties and kept his wits. In the Odyssey, Odysseus said, “Old shipmates, friends, the rest of you stand by; I’ll make the crossing in my own ship, with my own company, and find out what the mainland natives are.” (898) Odysseus’s leadership kept his men together and their trust in him. He was one of the first ones off the ship to lead his men into the unknown land. Likewise, I showed leadership by holding my position while playing center defender in soccer.
He ended up using his natural instinct which was to save his whole crew over a bleeding cut. The fact that Louie is throwing himself into being the leader of the tough situation and using his mental skill to comprehend ideas which could lead to a different fate shows how skillful he really is. As can also be seen in the text: "He snatched the cord, reeled the raft to him, and climbed aboard. He rowed to Phil and Mac" (Hillenbrand 4, 5). This also shows how important skillfulness is due to the fact that Louie found his solution to a problem and put it in action.
A heroic person is best described as someone whom is extraordinarily bold and that daringly goes to extreme measures for particular reasons. Odysseus lived up to such heroic qualities numerous times throughout Homer’s epic, The Odyssey, while on his voyage home to Ithaca. Homer has created Odysseus as a heroic figure in the Odyssey possessing characteristics of savior, courageous, and sly. Savior was shone while is on the island of the Lotus Eaters, home to a harmless group of people who eat only the flowering lotus plant. He sent and trusted three of his men to scope the island but instead they ran into and joined the lotus eaters.
While odyssey’s crew is stranded without his leadership and advice, they are unsure where to go due to lack of knowledge and no mentor to lead them. His crew was “wailing and crying besides sailing ship”(10.433) no knowledge . They are missing Odysseus , the leader who is going to guide them in war and then back home. Odysseus is a devoting leader despite his his narcissistic actions and Through out his crew’s tough journey they always dependent on Odysseus to guide them through the right path. odysseus’ life is blessed by Zues, all his knowledge abilities are blessing from the gods .Even before Odysseus came to life he was predestined to become an honored charismatic leader who is greeted by his crew with tears of happiness and relief due to the many blessings that were given to him by the gods.
An example of these skills would be the fact that he never makes his men do anything he wouldn’t do himself: “as for myself I took my twelve best fighters and went ahead” (Homer 136). It would have been much easier for him to just send his men out on their own and stay safely on the ship. However, this was not the case as he bravely went alongside his men to lead them into the land of the giants. He also made sure to take great care of and protect the men he was responsible for: “I carved a massive cake of beeswax into bits and rolled them in my hands until they softened” (Homer 707). To protect his men from the songs of the Sirens, he rolled up some bees wax to make
He also encounters the suitors, who are a group of men that try to marry Penelope, when he returns to reclaim his home. During these situations, Odysseus gains leadership and tactical skills from fighting in the war in Troy, which costs him 10 years of his life and another 10 years of sailing out on the sea from Poseidon 's curse. Odysseus is therefore a heroic and efficient leader because he plans his moves ahead of time and is vigilant at all times to ensure his safety. Yet, though Odysseus possesses these heroic leadership qualities, his arrogance sometimes leads to his downfall and inability to lead. While Odysseus is a little arrogant, he can also be a great leader because he is able to trust his second in command, Eurylochus, and give him more power while he is away.
An example shining his courage is when him and his men had to go past Scylla when he knew any of them could die and he was also putting himself in danger. Another example is when he chose to be tied up for the passing of the Sirens. This was a courageous act because no other mortal man had been able to do that and make it out alive. One last example is When he came home to all of the suitors in his house. This is courageous because the suitors only cared about getting Penelope and if they cared so much about that why would they want Odysseus to come home to ruin their chances?
He proves that he is a great leader and isn’t easily affected by conflict. He says, “[I] shouted out to him in my rage, ‘Cyclops, if anyone asks you who it was that put your eye out and spoiled your beauty, say it was the valiant warrior Odysseus…’” (96-98). As he and the remainder of his crew are leaving the island, he yells back to Polyphemus to make sure the Cyclops knows exactly who he is. Odysseus additionally shows he can easily trick others. He says, “...three times did I fill the bowl for him, and three times did he drain it… then, I saw the wine had got to his head” (12-13).
