Leadership: What True Leaders Do

Several years ago, Robert Redford, starred in a film, The Candidate. The topic of the film was, the political voyage of a person, who was a real, underdog, who believed, had little prospect of winning, and the transformation, and eventual winning of his effort, even though he was not really ready for the position.

The key, line, in this movie, was when the personality, immediately after his victory, turned to his principle assists, and inquired, What do I do, now? We frequently consider and discuss, a few of the characteristics and resources, quality leaders have and need, but this guide will try, to briefly consider, analyze, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic strategy, what a true leader, must do, FIRST.

Everything needs to start, with owning the essential attention, to face reality, in a relevant manner! How one looks to the future, and whether it’s realistic, relevant, and sustainable, frequently, furnishes the foundation, for bringing one’s plans, to some positive, fruition!

2. Imagination

How can anybody be considered, a pioneer, unless/ until he instills confidence, in those he serves, and represents! This necessitates absolute integrity, together with the self – confidence, discipline, and willingness/ ability, to move ahead with an excellent creativity, considering as many viable alternatives, and options, as possible!

3. Relevant

4. Service
