What makes a good leader?
Lately I have been taking a leadership course( the course demonstrates how organizations have trained their leaders), and now as a assignment I am going to write a 250 word essay for you.
A good leader is someone who makes promises and sticks to them, but some leaders don’t, and get thrown out for it. With every leadership challenge comes great responsibility, if you are a good leader you are willing, and brave enough to take responsibility for your actions. The Communist party had good ideas for creating leaders, but I do not agree with the Communist ways. But i do agree with the AA’s approach to training their leaders.
The way the Communist party trains leaders is to make them go out to sell the daily worker, but they get harassed by the people disagreeing, and asking them questions . Then they have training for the defense of their main cause, but the AAs approach is a voluntary anonymous meeting group.
In boy scouts if I was the Senior patrol leader i would first would make steps that everyone could work on one at a time to get it done. Second keep everyone focused on the goal. Third follow up to see if everyone did their job. Then once done with the series of tasks look for other goals to make a better troop.
The AA’s message is “one day at a time for a lifetime”, and the Communist party is “anything for the party.” I agree it is weird to compare Communists, alcoholics, and Boy Scouts but it is an example of organizations that successfully grew quickly.
