This time I would like to share what it means to be a leader. People want to be leaders, but not everybody can be a leader. Being a leader is a great responsibility, we will become an example to the people who follow us. Being a leader is not just exercise power towards others, tyranny is not leadership. Plenty of people who are managers and top executives sit at their positions by thinking that they are the most powerful one. People should follow their instructions and commands at all cost. Power and leadership are not the same thing. Dr. John Edmund Haggai defined “Leadership is the discipline of deliberately exerting special influence within a group to move toward goals of beneficial permanence that fulfill the group’s real needs.” Being a leader takes daily discipline. Leaders are made not born, it’s true that a person may intuitively display a leadership characteristics. However, he/she will not succeed in leadership unless they work hard to make themselves perfect. Being a leader means that we have to bring influence to the group, giving impact for the group and move them to walk toward goals set to fulfill the need of the group. Leader sometimes even has to sacrifice him/her self to achieve those goals. So are you ready to be a leader?
