While society tries to persist amongst so many great problems, it also tries to find some leadership that can direct it to the goals that have been set by society and overcome the problems that society is facing. What great qualities should leadership posses? To whom should society lookup? What should be their mindset for the betterment of society?
First of all, we should be clear about the fact that leadership can comprise on one or more than one person. Leadership is not only about achieving goals or solving problems. It should also be bold and gutsy to take drastic steps in the hardest of times. Leadership does not only mean brave and honor, as Niccolo Machiavelli said “All courses of action are risky, so prudence is not in avoiding danger (it’s impossible), but calculating risk and acting decisively.” When we hear the term acting decisively, it means, a leadership can become “coward” at places because they are deciding the society’s fate and if it is a good decision in acting cowardly then they should take it. So, it means that leadership is about making decisions for the betterment of society.
Today, the society we are living in is full of problems and various issues. In these times we look for a leadership which can lessen the amount of issues in our society. The leadership must be bold, brave, honest with a sense of communication and coward too at times.
Looking around the globe we mostly find two types of leadership, we find leaderships with charisma and authority. Charismatic leadership is actually based on followership and it is most likely to have a loyal people society whereas the authority is given to a certain person who then heads the society and makes decision for the betterment so that there is no uprising amongst the people against leadership.
Leadership should be able to solve the problems of their people and society and not like a bad leadership which cannot do any better to their society.
