Leaders – The strength within.

What is leadership?

Is it influencing people? Is it giving directions? Is it supporting people?

I think to be a true leader one has first to be strong inside, i.e., within himself. I came to the LE module knowing there are certain people who don't want me in the team. Initially I was thinking that I should get my team changed (it would have been very easy). But then when at the end of the day I sat down with myself and asked myself, would that really help me? Am I not strong enough within to be able to stand up to people who do not like me. Because not everyone in this world is going to be found of you and then you can not run away from everyone or every situation.

The values that a person caries are the foundation of a good leader. I think a good leader should never hold any malice or bad feeling regarding any one within himself as this would certainly influence his reasonable thinking. Is it the Urban terorrist within your team to be blamed or then have you really put in the effort to make him a star?

    When you referring to the team that don’t want you i guess you refer to our team, well then I think you have misinterpreted the situation. We did want you to be a part of our team and still does, but being a part of team means you also have to contribute. I’m not here to judge or say anything about the reasons for this misunderstanding just trying to clarify the decision.
    I did not find the situation fair for us or you. So it has nothing to do with not liking you or anything only the situation.
    Don’t hope you still feel like this.

    Hi, it is not necessary for you to like them if they do not like you!! You could find your friends or yours support voice, even if it is not easy. If you feel the judgement is unfair, why accept it? Of course, if you feel the judgement is fair, accept it and follow it. Just my view.
