How to develop a self lead character
leadership is not bossing or lording authority over others, rather
leadership is led by example. Little wonder JOHN C. MAXWELL says
“A leader is one who knows the way,goes the way and shows the way”.
For too long we have supported the notion of tyrannical leadership
where a leader is someone who is beyond reach, correction and caution.
No that is wrong. If a leader must expect a certain standard of good
result he must lead by example and execute professionally what he
expect of the people. Then noticing the high level of efficiency by
the people,much efforts and sacrifice will be projected into the
Napoleon Bonaparte a French military general did not win over 6
Napoleonic coalition wars by sitting on the throne and commanding
troops to go to the war front, rather he led by example by maintaining
a strategic and unshakable stance at the war front, in short it was
said that his presence in the battle is worth 4,000 soldiers. This is
how to lead by self. After all Jesus Christ did not request peter to
walk on the water while he was offshore. He did that which he
requested the follower to emulate. Proper leadership that must yield
fecundity must be exercised by self lead.
*DEVELOPING SELF LEAD CHARACTER*
Self discovery is the foundation of self lead character. A leader
that must lead by example must discover his essence before leading
people. He must first believe in his capabilities and natural
instincts of high dream,he must think high of himself not to the
extent of pride but to the coverage limitation of high self-esteem.
An eagle that believes it is a chicken will live a very miserable
life. The eagle will flock with chickens when it should soar high in
the sky with other eagles.
You cannot be an effective leader,a self leading leader if you don’t
know who you are. Self discovery is the basis of leadership.
