THE GUID­ING PRIN­CI­PLES OF A LEADER

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

JEAN Y. MEMPIN

The ut­most or best char­ac­ter trait of a leader is that he or she is a good fol­lower. There are many quotes about lead­er­ship or a leader. “To be a good leader, be a good fol­lower”. Fol­low to­day, LEAD later, these are just some best quotes of a leader. Be­fore some­one is placed in the po­si­tion as a leader, she or he was rec­om­mended be­cause of his/ her in­tense in the skills of lead­er­ship.

A good leader is STRONG and COURA­GEOUS. There are many chal­lenges along the way. As a leader, be brave enough to passed the tri­als, firm in his/ her de­ci­sions and hum­ble in deal­ing with the em­ploy­ees.

Be­fore be­com­ing a leader, be sub­mis­sive to those in au­thor­ity. This is what a leader ex­pects to the sub­or­di­nates when his turn comes. Fol­low­ing God’s in­struc­tions must be the pri­or­ity of a leader to have a suc­cess­ful pat­tern in lead­er­ship. When a leader fol­low these in­struc­tions, he is on his right track and ev­ery­thing goes smooth.

A leader med­i­tates most of the time. Each day is a blessed day for ev­ery­one. As the day starts, the bless­ings of the Lord shower day in un­til day out. How do we do our tasks each day, how we deal with those who need our help, how do we re­spond to the less for­tu­nate. These are just some ge­tures we can do after med­i­ta­tions.

Have we ex­erted our best ef­forts in the name of lead­er­ship/ ser­vice to our fel­lows? Let us al­ways be re­minded of the quote “Fol­low to­day, Lead to­mor­row”.
