Our world is made up with great leaders. Names we all know. Their actions changed the dynamic and voice of our society. Let’s keep up their leadership values.
- Jacinda Ardern – New Zealand NZ’s wonderful role model, mother and prime minister brief. Quote “I want to be a good leader. I don’t want to be know simply as the woman who gave birth”
- Mahatma Gandhi – Figure of non-violent resistance. Quote “Be the change that you wish to see in the world”
- Nelson Mandela – Anti-apartheid revolutionary, political leader and philanthropist.
- Albert Einstein – E=MC2 beyond the physicist and mathematician is an intellect that was applied.
- Mother Teresa – Working in Calcutta dedicating her life to the poor.
- Bill Gates – Pioneer in microcomputing and co-founder of microsoft.
- Oprah Winfrey – Media executive, actress, talk show host and philanthropist. Quote “You don’t become what you want, you become what you believe in”.
- Karl Lagerfeld – Legend in design and fashion.
- Michael Jordan – American former professional basketball player.
- Diana Spencer – Charles, prince of Whales wife and charity figure.
What do all these names have in common? They’re icons.
But what do they all have in common? What does it take to become an icon?
The Leadership Concept
First of all, you need a subject where you have specials values, skills, or knowledge. Karl Lagerfeld had fashion when Albert Einstein had physics. Then you have to find out what society is lacking. For Michael Jordan it was victories for Chicago Bulls, and for Mother Teresa it was aid to the poor. Finally, you need to know what you can bring. What can you do to improve the situation?
Leaders are about Action
After a lot of work, a name slowly begins to make itself known. This has been the case for Oprah Winfrey who worked tirelessly or Nelson Mandela who never stopped fighting against apartheid. Then confront others and the society. It will make your name public. It was not easy for Mahatma Gandhi and his great ideas of non-violent civil disobedience. It is also important to know how to rise above failures. Because at some point, there will inevitably be failures. Bill Gates didn’t get those computer programs right the first time. Finally, the name becomes unique and symbolic. Diana Spencer for example, became unique because of her history, her kindness and her unique social aspect as an English aristocrat.
Each in their own area, these people have brought something new.
What will be the names of tomorrow? Are the next geniuses of history in school right now? Or are they already preparing the novelty of the future?
Maybe it’s you behind your computer who has an incredible project.
