When we talk of a leader, we know this is an individual with something outstanding that makes him or her stand out fit to lead others. Then a leader has the trust of the majority who believes that he or she has what it takes to be followed. But then being a leader is a task that may take toll on anyone’s life because in this case you are now the head of so many people who may want you to this for them today, tomorrow something else so imagine how hectic this can be.
So a few days ago, there was an executive meeting with senior officials in the government discussing certain issue. But then in the due course of the meeting, on official supposedly walked out in protest of what seemed like ideas which he felt were misplaced or even something that he thought is not in the best interests of everyone. May be in his capacity he felt justified to convey his unsupportive stand, right in the eyes of everyone.
But then as a leader, I think just like your followers take time to listen to you, you should also listen to what others have to say. He ought to have stayed and listen to the controversial forum which according to him only meant to force those who think it’s the right thing to do even when others are comfortable to remain the same.
So the best he would have done is to remain in attendance in the meeting and still give suggestions to what he thinks is best. That’s why we have leaders who become our eyes and ears kept open to do things policy wise on our behalf. A good leader should always be ready for anything and ought to know what to do with situations that one thinks do not call for ones support. We are all human beings and as such are entitled to freedom of choice.
