leader vs dictator / leader vs crisis.
From my point of view, general leader is far from being called dictator. Only those who are very powerful leaders, no matter either personal power or positional power they have, could be mentioned to be compared with dictator. Subconsciously, every one want to be a dictator, as people like the feeling of owning the unlimited power to order or control others, it mignt be seen as one of the basic instinct of animal. It is very hard to self control 1oo percent, I believe that the external monitoring and restricting is most important to keep a great leader away from a dangerous dictator.
I totally agree with other classmates opinion presented in session. Additionally, I got other opion on it. When we talk about crisis,fist of all, it should be divided into two category, one is unforeseenable, another is foreseenable. Facing the crisis that could be estimated beforehand , a qualified leader should have the ability to realize what are the trouble they are experiencing and find out the root cause under the surface, make some changes to turn it around before it becomes a real crisis and prepare a plan of how to survive assuming that the crisis actually happens. When it comes to unforeseenalbe crisis, a effective leader is expected to identify the current state, check what resouce can be used, and make a right decision as soon as possible.
