Being a leader is a dream of many people. But very little number of dreamers can realize their dreams. Leadership is not a dream, it is to use the experience and knowledge obtained by ourselves and from all people around us is managing people.
We gain experience in life by living, trying and observing not by aging. People say "all persons can not be a leader. It requires special talents."
However, leadership does not need only talent, leader is a person who has desire, motivation and self-development abilities. Leadership is about people. Leaders, Authentic and Authentic Servant Leaders look at their around as people, living breathing people with wants and needs and challenges with a life outside of their place.
Steve Keating says in an article: " So imagine how hard it is to help people succeed, to place them in roles with the greatest chance for success, when you only see one view of their picture. Throughout my career I’ve seen friends, family, and colleagues promoted or placed into positions where they had no chance to be successful. They may have had all the skills needed to excel but they did not have the temperament. Their physical and mental skills may have been excellent but their people skills simply didn’t measure up. Perhaps they had outstanding human relation skills but lacked some vital skill in another area.
A pure manager or a pure leader could easily miss those critical facts." By caring about these facts, a leader can unified power of all subordinates by being in dialog with them. Unification is always useful when directed in right way.
All people in team has a specific role/s to complete mission successfully. Leader has to know abilities, skills and personality structure of each of them to use in correct time and position. To being a GOOD LEADER is impossible, if the person has not have developed human relations capacity.
Leadership seems amusing, joyous responsibility but in reality it is very serious job. You may see differences between real and imitation leaders in time which requires to take life-sustaining decisions either in right way.
