Transcript of Anatomy of a Leader


Every great leader has to be passionate. If you are not passionate for what you believe in then you will never achieve your goal. Whether you are leading a small group of people or a whole movement if you are not passionate toward the situation then the people you are trying to lead will not be as passionate either.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Martin Luther King Jr. was one of Americas greatest leaders. He led the Equal Rights Movement to try and get equal rights for African Americans. This movement took a lot of passion because he had to get a whole ethnicity of people on his side, which takes a lot of work. If he did not have the passion to lead this, today African Americans may still be fighting for their rights. Our life would be very different from today because everything would still be segregated. Also, we would be living in one country, but it would feel like one society overpowering the other. If Martin Luther King Jr. was not passionate just imagine what the United States would be like today.
In his own sense Hitler was a great leader. He led the Genocide movement behind the world while fighting against the world. It took a lot of passion to lead the movement, if he did not stay passionate then all the Nazi's would start to question his authority, what would have stopped them from sharing his secret. Hitler was a very passionate leader.


Courage is one of the most important traits a leader must possess. A leader must have mental and moral strength to carry out their tasks. You have to be able to stand up for what you believe in even if it goes against the popular belief. Some examples of leaders with courage include Amelia Earhart and George Washington.
George Washington
" No danger is to be considered when put in competition with the magnitude of the cause."
"It's better to be alone than in bad company."
"It's better to offer no excuse than a bad one."
Amelia Earhart
Qualities of A Leader

In order to be a leader you must be responsible. A leader who is responsible contributes to their beliefs and their community. They always do their work to their full ability. Leaders who are responsible are always working and they are never taking time off.

In order to become a great well known leader you must be able to initiate a belief or cause. If you are a good leader and start something full force then people will get on your side and you will start a whole movement.
For people to like you, you must be able to relate to them. In order to relate with someone you must be able to talk to them and keep a conversation going. You must also have a good sense of humor where you are not over board, but you are not totally serious. Just be yourself and if they do not like you then that is there problem.
One of the most important traits for a leader is honesty. Without honesty, a leader would be unreliable and untrustworthy. Leaders must tell the truth in order to be loyal.
