Leadership


When I think of a leader, I think of a great man who just has that aura of "I'm going to fuck shit up and you're going to do it with me." Some say that leadership exists in the Army but I would have to politely disagree. Leadership is a trait that cannot be taught or drilled in, its something that is natural. Great leaders were just born that way, they just have to discover it, which is usually the hard part. All the "leaders" that I know, save for a couple real ones, are not leaders at all. They sit in the back and bark commands very similarly to a sweet 16 from the disgraceful MTV show. Real leaders of men are the first to act and the first to admit their mistakes. They lead from the front, not the rear.

We have too many sheep and people pretending to be leaders. Like you said leaders need to be onward not backwards!

you might have been born with leadership, but you'll need the right opportunity to show for it.

Justin testing said...

I think leadership has a lot to do with beliefs and trust in your own judgement; if you don't trust your decision is the best, then you're not gonna be charging in the front taking the hit.

TreeBranchez said...

I agree with the fact that leadership is more of a trait that one can either develop naturally or be born with.

That happens everywhere, there is not a single company with an asshole for a boss.

I've found many military leaders don't function very well as leaders outside of the military. They are a unique breed.

Very true. It's sad that these traits aren't recognized and rewarded as often as they should.
