Having commitment and passion for something can make you an outstanding leader. Being an athlete, I know the importance of commitment and passion. If you are passionate about doing something, then you will be more committed. Personally, I think know that the NJHS will be a good fit for me because I am very passionate about helping people and I would be very committed in doing so. Accountability and responsibility go hand in hand for leaders.
As Peter Drucker once said, “Management is doing things right, leadership is doing the right things”. An effective and successful leader has many qualities that help the audience and create positive results and outcomes. In the novel Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, Okonkwo, one of the leaders of Umuofia, was very strong, cold, and he reinforced Igbo traditions and culture within the tribe. Although he had the right qualities, he was not amiable towards his people which didn’t allow him to be a good leader. In order to be an effective leader, there have to be many attributes that define how distinguished and proficient of a leader someone is, which is clearly conveyed not only through this novel, but the articles “The Difference Between
With confidence, a leader can appeal to a greater audience because people believe in individuals that transmit trust through their words and actions. By staying confident in your ultimate goal or cause, any difficulty will seem as only one pebble in your way not a big wall. Because of this, I consider that without confidence a leader cannot fulfill its duties with his cause and followers. This essential trait is shown through two contemporary leaders: Nelson Mandela and Malala Yousafzai. Nelson Mandela was the man that led the fight against Apartheid in South Africa.
This is why they look up to athletes, because they are all they have to look to (Steinberg). They look to them for guidance and want to follow in their footsteps. This is why athletes can be so beneficial to society, because they can be good examples to the younger generation. Many athletes may say that it is not their job to role models. It may not be their job; however, it is their responsibility to be a good role model.
Salvation of man is through love; and strength is found through love and loved ones in life. Showing interest in many things and not waiting last minute to get things done is all part of psychological survival. The most important idea in the film is helping others makes humans better people. It’s the idea to “better man” that is an important part of helping
Though that definition is correct, I think we can expand and improve it. A hero is somebody who helps another person, but he also helps to push them above and beyond what they thought they could personally do. Heros can think straight when it comes to emergencies, and they always help if they are at the right place at the right time. They encourage others to do great things and are very humble when it comes to any accomplishments. Putting the term “hero” into a class is kind of tricky.
He didn’t understand why everyone was being so unkind and inconsiderate towards him. So he decided to make a change. I think the world is ok you just have to have the right influences and be around the right people. I have a lot of inspirational people in my life and and I view them as important because I get most of my motivation from them. I view my parents as inspirational because they try to help others and that influences me to help others just like Scott’s parents .
Many things make a strong leader, their ability to calm the people, stabilize crises, and set good examples of citizenship. Overall a strong leader is “strong” if her or she can continuously hold onto power, and in order to do this, leaders must be liked by the people they govern. As history will show, leaders that are not liked by the people usually are not able to hold on to power for long, such as that in the case of King George III and the 13 British crown colonies in America. In theory, leaders that stay in power the longest are loved by the people because of their bravery and wisdom. These qualities-bravery and wisdom, wether he or she uses it to defend the country against it invaders or in creating laws for the well being and functionality of state, must be possessed by leaders in order to ensure the people’s safety and well being.
So, one of the top attributes I want to master is honesty, trustworthiness and fairness. These virtues are frequently thought to be the measure of good moral character as well. To be an inspiration to others cultivating these values in my life is imperative. Besides this would enable one to surround oneself with other members of integrity and talent which is necessary for a successful leader. • Courage As a leader, I have to face all the challenges and problems that occur under my administration and must take the lead to place my community to where I wanted it to be i.e., to a more prosperous and safer position.
It isn’t, “what does it mean to be a leader,” but rather, “what does it take to be a great leader.” Anyone can be a leader if they are committed and passionate about their cause. A leader must be a good listener, kind, respectful, respectable, patient, and most of all humble. The greatest leaders in the world are able to accept, even in positions of power, that they are equal to all people. A true leader, does their work because they value the needs of the people, not because they desire praise or power for their doings. Leaders keep an open mind for change and improvement.
