is a skill to surround the power to perform of an individual to lead. It will
be a tough task who dares to be a role model, the reason is a leader will have
a great responsibilities regarding his actions and how his words affect others
especially those who are around him. The favour itself will not be always by
his side so a leader must know how to face the consequences on everything he do.

everyone’s attention will be the first step to lead the people. A leader should
have a brave heart and a sharp mind in order to arrive at what they are aiming
for. The leader are the starting point and the ripple that will give an impact
to the fellow workers. It’s going to be undeniably challenging but it’ll all be
worth it not when you reach your destination or goal but once you finally

constituents stock in awe. A leadership style is the tool to influence people
in a good way. Furthermore, providing guidance, implement plans and to motivate
people. Every leader has its own style or passion to lead, to be able to
overtake their goal. Leadership is an authority and superiority of a person or

titles, positions or flowcharts. It is about one life influencing another. A
leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way. Leaders must
be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them. A leader
who produces other leaders multiples their influences.
