1961The twins were born - Casey and Timoin. how does he demonstrate moral leadership? i think nat king cole showed moral leadership when he started his radio station and his television show. i say this because he was the first black to make one and went through alot to keep it too. he encouraged other blacks to follow their dreams and never give up in what they believe in. Why Should This Person Be Regarded As A Moral Leader? he should be regarded because he did thing others wouldn't even dream of doing because of all the negativity that could happen scince there was segregation back then which restricted blacks from many things such as making a television show. What Strong Character Traits Does This Person Possess? Ambitious-Eager to succeed; full of desire
He is ambitious because he wouldn't give up on his career no matter what happened or got in his way.
Brave-Having or showing courage
he is brave because he went through a lot to get what he may have deserved in life.
Charismatic-Showing a special ability to lead people, win people's devotion
I think he is charismatic because if he wouldnt have steped up to be the first black to become a famous singer,then i dont think anyone else would have. How Have These Traits Impacted His Leadership? If he wasn't ambitious or brave he would not have when against his wills to make a television show or a radio station. If he wasn't charismatic he would have quit when times got hard. Nat's Death In 1964, Cole discovered that he had lung cancer. He succumbed,died, to the disease just months later on Feb. 15th, 1965 at the age of 45, in Santa Monica, California.
