For over a year and half now we are told all about how bad Our Dear Leader is and how he is ruining everything……especially the country.
We always hear a politician tell the people what it takes to be a good leader but unfortunately it is their ideas of what it takes not the reality of being a good leader.
So there needs to be a clarification and a standardization of the qualities leadership.
Then there is the question …how many characteristics are there?
Well I found out after much reading and thought that there are 45 characteristics that a good leader should possess…..
What are the qualities which a leader should possess? There have been many attempts at listing the many good qualities which a leader should possess, and cataloguing those undesirable characteristics which he should not possess or should minimize or eliminate. Such a listing often serves only to discourage the aspirant to leadership, because, in summation, they seem to describe an unattainable ideal. However, a goal toward which to aim is necessary, if one is to shape his efforts in self-development so as to gain a satisfactory measure of accomplishment in preparing himself to lead, to guide and direct the efforts of others in any field of common endeavor.
The qualities of the leader may be grouped according to different methods. They may be separated into personal characteristics and professional capabilities; they may be classed as physical, mental, and moral qualities; or they may be considered as those qualities related to the leader himself, and those related to the individuals whom he aspires to lead.
Compare your favorite politician to the list of characteristics…..a true “good leader” will be hard to find these days because most politicians are owned by lobbyists so most will only get about 5 or 6 of the characteristics of the 45……
If you find a politician that has most of the characteristics then I suggest that you work hard to get the person elected….this country needs and deserves good leaders….we have been too long in the fog of shitty politicians….time for that to change.
Disregard parties….pick your candidates by leadership qualities….not by personality.
