Organizations take on the personality of their leaders, and followers must be confident that the leader of the organization can be trusted with the outcome of the journey. The leader must be able to attract followers. New leaders can successfully persuade others to trust them, and will evidence other certain behaviors.

First he/she needs to have self confidence in order to have confidence towards others in order to carry out any work. Empathy; a leader needs to realize and understand that the feelings of others does effect the work place and should be respected. Organization is at the top of the list of outstanding qualities for a leader, and being prepared for anything such as meetings and events makes a leader look stronger and more productive. Leadership is obviously shown the novel “Lord of the Flies”, by: William Golding; for example when Jack wants to have control in
Whether it’s volunteering at a homeless shelter, picking up trash or donating to a good cause, these are all examples of altruistic deeds accomplished to better improve the quality of an individual’s life without any selfish grants or gains in return. The same respect goes to Simon, who in Lord of the Flies displays the most altruistic characteristics as he stays true from the beginning and end of the book. Simon, instead of spending his hours in nature like he wants to, remains by Ralph to build shelter, and even assisting in feeding the littluns, finding “fruit they could not reach, pulled off the choicest...passed them back down to the endless, outstretched hands… The littluns watched him inscrutably over double handfuls of ripe fruit”(56). In addition, when Jack gets his first kill Simon gives away his food when Piggy is excluded. Given the points here, Simon is a character in Lord of the Flies that plays an important, yet quiet role.
A well known quote by writer James Hollingworth is written as “Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.” It takes courage to stand up for something you believe in, no matter the consequences. People do not have courage when they aren’t afraid of something. People have courage when they take a stand against all other opinions or rejections and fight for what they believe is important. Courage is the ability to look past fear and focus only on the good that will come from such bravery. Whether it be courage to stand up for an entire race of people, or just one man.
The skills one would need to embody to be a good leader is someone who has a set of personal ethics that ensures leadership, takes charge and uses, and doesn’t abuse, their power, but is also liked by their followers. Leadership roles are best performed with a good set of ethics. Aristotelian virtues are the best set of ethics that a leader can have. These virtues or ethics are: courage, temperance, generosity, magnificence, magnanimity, ambitious, patience, truthfulness, carism, friendliness, modesty, and righteous indignation. If a leader is courageous and generous, they would step up to the call of duty, but also respect and give to their following.
Dow describes intellectually courageous people as those who earnestly want to know the truth, and therefore take risks in the promotion and pursuit of truth. Only when people overcome their small fears will they be able to form habits that will ultimately turn them into intellectually courageous human beings.
You been rude about his hunters’ (142). The discrepancy between Jack’s opinion of himself and his associates shows yet again when Ralph forces the reality upon Jack. Jack’s hunters were, indeed, no more than boys armed with sticks, and their yield rate (54) testified against their capabilities. Jack doesn’t realize that he really was the only one hunting, and the others’ presences were mostly trivial, which gave him a false sense of empowerment, continuously building his conflicting ideas between his “important” role as a hunter, and the reality that meat wasn’t an absolute necessity. What types of images are used in conjunctions with the character?
For Aristotle this means your being the best possible person you can be. One knows their strengths but also, they will know their weaknesses. One will always work on their weaknesses. This type of person will do good things. If you want to be courageous, you must practice at it until it becomes part of your character.
