I always see people discussing what it takes to BE a good leader, but that is often followed with debate, over-analysis, and argument about the adjectives you need to be in order to be a GOOD leader. Can leadership be taught? Are you born with it? Blah blah blah!!!
Leadership is subjective like anything else. You may define person A as a good leader but in my experience of person A is that they’re an utter failure. Does running a $100 billion business make you a good leader? Not always because we’ve seen companies like that collapse.
Whether it’s a business leader, a political leader, military leader, or a Boy Scout leader; there are certain characteristics you must have, obviously, but is it black and white…HELL NO!!! So why do we sit around over-analyzing such things? Well, seems to be something humans enjoy doing…talking shit to death!
My humble, meek, unimportant opinion is that GOOD leaders know what to do and what not to do in the millions of situations that they face. All situations call for something different and all people require a different approach…and being able to figure all those things out is what makes a good leader.
There is not a definitive, “here’s how you HAVE to be” definition that can contain and describe a good leader. Again, this topic, like almost all in the world, are NOT black and white. So live and let live!!
