The Leader In You PDF
After reading this book I realized what’s the difference between a “commander” and a “leader”: a commander is who commands people all the time; who stands by rather than working together with his members; who treats his members with harsh words and disrespect to finish the goals, and who thinks his position is superior to anyone else.
A “leader” leads the team toward each goal and regards them equally, nicely, and with respect. The most obvious question to figure it out is to ask the employees, “Do you like to work with him/her?” A commander’s team could also finish the goal, whose team members are commanded all the time and compelled to complete the work with threats and harsh words.
It would have no difference, compared to a leader’s team, in the short term. But soon, the members of the commander’s team would lose initiative and motivation, in the end, resign. My supervisor was such a commander. Though it was my first paid job in my life, because of his commanding, ordering, disrespect, all in all, the lack of leadership, it makes me and other members lose the initiative, swears behind him, lose the enthusiasm in working.
His misbehaviours made me more interested in figuring out how to be a leader, especially a good leader. You would find out among the lines: It is not hard, and should never be challenging, to be a good leader, because the leadership is always in you but only should you unveil it, cement it, use it, would you be a good leader in this world.
We need the leaders at more than any time in this tumulus world. Read The Leader in You to find the leadership which is dormant deep inside of your mind.
