Trust you all have been doing well.
I would like to start with a message of Staying Home, Staying Healthy and Staying Happy.In short let’s follow SH3 at the time of lockdown.
Today I am going to talk about a word which has been quite popular these days which is none other than a word – Leadership. Let’s welcome this word in our dictionary if it is missing till now because today’s challenge is, to understand it in a better way.
As we all know, there is a huge difference between saying and doing so is the case about being a Leader and a Leadership. Leader is incomplete without ship which is not the case otherwise; Leadership means a ship lead by a Leader.
You may find many leaders without leadership quality but it’s hard to find any ship without a leader.
You may find qualities of being a good leader over internet. So, I don’t want to explain things which are already been there.
For me, a leader is not a leader without followers and for a true leader (with leadership quality) is one who is a follower.
Let me use my drawing skills to make it easy to understand which will definitely cut short my write-up.
Let’s try to under the difference between a leader and a leadership considering above illustrations where black spots represents people.
In the Figure-1, anyone can easily spot the leader who could be the first in either direction but they are not followers so by definition they can’t be true leaders. But many may have a question, why? There is a high probability of a leader without being a follower to be swayed easily. He may become directionless and once he will become a directionless, needless to say about his followers. Moreover, in such scenario, there won’t be any growth in equal proportion and at times leaders quit because of extra burden. In many cases, things disperse when 2 lines cross each other (X).
Let’s examine second figure which is derived from first figure by joining both extreme ends. In this case, it’s really difficult to identify which one is a leader and which one is follower. Moreover, you may find every leader is a follower at least. So the chances of being swayed are almost null because all are leaders and all are followers. This implies there will be proportionate growth of all because load will divided equally or in other words all will be responsible to fight against a common challenge. Growth in this case could be slow but with minimal risk which can be measured when smaller circle will becomes larger every time (R>r).
So, with this I would like to throw a challenge of being a follower before being a leader. Find one leader who you would admire a lot and who would help you to become who you are. In-short, help you to be a leader.
Let’s validate this process (#VoTP) by becoming a leader and then helping others to become a leader and so on, eventually making many big circles which will encapsulate the entire earth which is round in shape.
