Leadership

If you look in the dictionary for a definition of leadership, you will find something like this: "the activity of leading a group of people or an organization or the ability to do this". Leadership for me is a bit more than the ability of leading others, it's a way of guiding.

What does guiding mean? Literally bringing people from point A to point B, but what is the point A and what is the point B? It can be from your home to your work place. Abstractly, it means something more, like going from ignorance to knowledge. We can guide others in many different ways. I think a good leader is able to guide others into their choices, their goals, their work and their life in general. I mean to guide them on their way, give them advice, help them, give them inspiration, meet their expectations and show them the best way to take to reach their destination which, as I already said, can be a place to go or new knowledge or goals. This can be anything: teaching how to make a simple cake, how to drive a car, how to do a job or something like how to handle a situation or resolve a problem. But being a teacher is different to being a leader which is also different to being a good leader. It's easy to be a leader, it's more difficult to be a good leader. There are different levels of leadership. People can follow you because they have to, doesn't mean they like to follow you and so in this case you don't really need to be a good leader, people will follow you anyway but this is probably not what the leaders are looking for. Here is the difference between people who follow you because they want to; it means you do something to make them think that it's advantageous for them to be led by you or they get something from it. In this case you might think that you maybe are a good leader. I think that to be a good leader others have to trust you and for that, you have to prove it to them. Lastly the benefit of being a good leader, is when you are able to make others also become a leader and it is even better if they become a good leader themselves.
