Nelson Mandela bests clarified that courage “is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear” (Brainy Quotes).

In developing this paper on leadership, I examined what was most important to me as a leader.

My leadership philosophy paper will focus on what leadership is to me, core values, and knowledge of others.
In Haper Lee’s novel, To Kill A mockingbird, the trial tests Atticus’s courage as it tries to see if he will snap underpressure or raise to the occasion. Yet snapping Atticus’s courage would not be a fate for him. The damsel in distress dynamitc is never just a saving the girl from the bad guy. It’s to take a battle meant for someone else knowing if someone didn’t fight, niether would the victum; and Atticus fought for the children of the man who was attacking him. “So if spitting in my face and threatening me saved Mayella Ewell one extra beating, that’s something I’ll gladly take. He had to take it out on somebody and I’d rather it be me than that houseful of children out there. You understand?” (Lee 222). Atticus saw the rippling effects
Ralph demonstrates an example of this when he realizes he needs to start acting like an adult. He continuously mentions the fire must keep going. “And another thing. We nearly set the whole island on fire...Now I say this and make it a rule because I’m chief. We won’t have a fire anywhere but on the mountain. Ever.” (87). Until they get rescued, Ralph matures and realizes being stuck on the island is not a game and they need to remain safe. Being able to step up when no one else would, shows bravery. “I’m chief. I’ll go. Don’t argue” (114). Everyone except Simon believed in the beast, but the biguns chose to not talk about it and when they encountered the beast, no one volunteered to face the beast. Ralph being able to sneak up to Samneric is another example of Ralph being courageous. “Terrified that they would run and give the alarm, he hauled himself up until his head and shoulders stuck over the top” (208). He snuck up to Samneric to ask them what Jack would do to Ralph. When he finds out that Jack is planning on killing him, he flees from the boys and tries to hide. Thus, possessing courage is an important trait leaders must have because it illustrates that they are capable to confront

One of the popular definitions of a leader is, "The only definition of a leader is someone who has followers." ( ) A more comprehensive definition that highlights striking features of a leader is, "A simple definition of leadership is that leadership is the art of motivating a group of people to act towards achieving a common goal.” ( ) A closer scrutiny of the characteristics of an influential leader would many ways assist one, in recognizing those attributes in an attempt to assimilate the best in others.
