Leadership is a great responsibility. It’s in no way a small feat because it involves handling other people’s issues. For the public to trust anyone with power and authority such a person must have earned it through evident charisma and selfless character. A leader is open minded, available to lead the way, and be able to test the waters.
Consider this short video I pulled from the movie Gladiator and observe how the soldiers reacted when their General appeared. I noticed the increased morale as the General walked through the rank. His courage and confidence alone was an inspiration for his men. I was inspired by his charisma too. They won the war by the way.
