We often hear this word in seminars or in a corporate setting. Companies or any organization spending for seminars for their employees. By the way, what is a leader? The word “leader” comes from the word “lead.” He is to direct or guide his people or group. A leader has a follower. There are no followers without a leader. Any organization has always a leader same as the church and family.
Here are some points to learn about a leader.
- A leader is not interpreted as success. Not all leaders are successful.
- A leader is not interpreted as riches. Not all leaders are rich and wealthy.
- A leader is not born. No one is born a leader; it is learned and developed.
- A leader doesn’t need to be intelligent. Leader is not measured by intelligence.
- High level or high-ranking position doesn’t mean you’re a leader. Not all people who are in high-level status possessed leadership traits.
Surprisingly indeed. A father in a family is a leader for he leads his family from thick and thin. Therefore, every person who has a family is a leader. They exert efforts to study and learn how to be a leader of the house.
Therefore, the word “leader” is a nice word to hear especially if you’re known as being the leader. It is something to be learned and developed. The attitude is the most relevant for a leader. Many have failed with their attitude. This is the reason why there’s a lot of misconception about a leader—as I mentioned above. The key is the application. If a leader doesn’t apply to become one, he is a leader by name—not a true leader.
“A true leader is the one who stays with you until the end. He is the one who will encourage you and protect you even your plan has failed. He will not blame you but will straightly tell you “Good try”. WE will do it again.
“Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It’s about impact, influence and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work, and you have to inspire team-mates and customers.” Robin S. Sharma
