can be defined in many ways. To some, leadership is merely the ability to direct
and control others toward a possible outcome or course of action. To others,
leadership is the ability to influence others for good, bad, or to motivate change or development.
Leadership to me is more
than “Leading”. I have been taught the He who was the greatest
of all became the least of all first. In other words, a leader is first
a follower, and understands the needs, wants and desires of those he leads. Service
and sacrifice can also be contributors of leadership qualities. Organizational
skills, goal setting, follow up, compatibility, and adaptability all are necessary for a leader to effectively carry out his
or her duties. I also believe that in many cases, humility, patience and love
are essential for effectively and constructively leading others.
