It was Myles Munroe who said: “An Army of Sheep led by a Lion will always defeat an Army of Lion led by a Sheep”. A Leader is therefore one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way.
Leadership is that special and unique ability to positively influence people towards the Achievement of Organisations or Group goals and aspirations. We need Leadership in our Homes, Schools, Churches and our different working places.
Leaders are Made, not Born. A person becomes a Leader by learning the necessary skills necessary to “elicit extraordinary performance from ordinary people”. You are what you think you are, your self-concept determines your performance.
Myles Munroe again, in a study of Leadership in Organizations discovered that “the thinking of a Leader is what separates him/her from the followers”. It was further discovered that true Leaders are distinguished by “a unique mental attribute which creates a strong, positive and confident self-concept and self-worth. This he called “the Spirit of Leadership”.
