QUALITIES OF A LEADER

I went in a search to become a leader. I searched high and low. I spoke with authority. People listened.

But alas, there was one wiser than I, and they followed that individual.

I sought to inspire confidence, but the crowd responded, "Why should I trust you?"

I postured, and I assumed the look of leadership with a countenance that flowed with confidence and pride.

But many passed me by and never noticed my air of elegance. I ran ahead of others, pointed the way to new heights. I demonstrated that I knew the route to greatness. And then I looked back, and I was alone.

"What shall I do?" I queried. "Iíve tried hard and used all that I know."

I sat down and pondered long. And then, I listened to the voices around me.

And I heard what the group was trying to accomplish. I rolled up my sleeves and joined in the work. As we worked, I asked, "Are we all together in what we want to do and how to get the job done?"

And we thought together, and we fought together, and we struggled towards our goal.

I found myself encouraging the fainthearted.

I sought the ideas of those too shy to speak out.

I taught those who had little skill.

I praised those who worked hard.

When our task was completed, one of the group turned to me and said, "This would not have been done but for your leadership."

At first, I said, "I didnít lead. I just worked with the rest."

And then I understood, leadership is not a goal. Itís a way of reaching a goal.

I lead best when I help others to go where weíve decided to go.
I lead best when I help others to use themselves creatively.
I lead best when I forget about myself as a leader and focus on my group...their needs and their goals.

To lead is to serve...to give...to achieve together.


In its mandate to spread knowledge, PVAF finds the answers to the following questions very useful in sNsaarik life when one is a LEADER with the name "MANAGER". The Focus of Great Managers who wishes to be highly effective managers is to get "totally agree" scores from subordinates on the following six questions:

1. Do I know what is expected of me?
2. Do I have the materials and equipment I need to do my work right?
3. At work, do I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day?
4. In the last seven days, have I received recognition or praise for doing good work?
5. Does my supervisor, or someone at work, seem to care about me as a person?
6. Is there someone at work who encourages my development?
