How I Am A Leader Essay - need some hints and pointers


answers: 7
Hello :)

I was informed to write an essay about "How I Am A Leader" I couldn't think of anything, and I'm waiting for some hints from you guys. If someone can come up with an introduction that would be great, because my mind is running out blank.


Thanks and sorry for taking some of your time

describe moments in your life where you took charge
start out saying that leadership is a relative term that can mostly be defined my the leaders followers
Google this: science of leadership

You can cite scholars like Prentice, Goleman, and others whose work you find when you research the science of leadership.

If you do a search for articles, you can find so many great articles about leadership science. Also, there are many styles: charismatic, transactional, transformational, servant....

Do your reading, write about what you understand, and you really will be a leader! :-)
What do you think?

A good leader must be articulate so he can understand everyone he leads. A good leader must also be strong minded so he can convince people to do what is right for the group. Last but not least you must be intelligent to one, know what is right for the group and two to back up your other two traits. The best leaders are articulate, strong minded, and intelligent.

Last but not least, you must be intelligent to one, enough to know what is right for the group and back up your other two traits. ---I simplified here.

Don't use "Someone" and then ""as you wish." It has to be like this: Someone who can speak well can convince all the people of the group to do as he or she wishes.


Someone who is smart can back up his or her statements with fact.----Good point! That is what I want you to do. When you make these statements about leadership, you should mention which authors wrote about leadership in the way you are talking about it. You and your reader need a common reference point if you are going to communicate something to her or him, so... how about if you write a few sentences about leadership as it is defined by Prentice? Google this: Understanding Leadership, Prentice, Harvard Business Review

:-) You have a nice way of writing, but it is impossible to write much without stopping to read a great article once in a while.
A good leader must be articulate so he can understand everyone he leads. A good leader must also be strong minded so he can convince people to do what is right for the group. Last but not least, you must be intelligent enough to know what is right for the group and back up your other two traits. The best leaders are articulate, strong minded, and intelligent.
A good leader must be articulate, in order to reach all the different types of people in the group. Someone who can speak well can convince all the people of the group to do as he or she wishes. One who speaks well can impose their thoughts on the group. Also, someone who does not speak well is less likely to be listened to than someone that does speak well. One who speaks well will benefit the group the most.
Although you must be articulate, you must also be strong-minded to back up you statements. Being strong-minded can help to convince people to do as you would like. If someone can keep a group under control they can keep everyone working and bettering the group, and this takes a strong-minded person. If one is strong minded they could keep everyone on task and getting along. And most importantly a strong-minded person can keep himself on task.
To be a good leader you must be strong-minded, but more importantly you have to be intelligent. Someone who is smart can back up his or her statements with fact. If someone is intelligent people are more likely to listen to their ideas before someone who is less intelligent. If one is intelligent they have the ability to instruct a group properly. And if one is intelligent they can organize the entire groups' projects better the less intelligent person.
A good leader has to be articulate, strong-minded, and intelligent. If one is intelligent they can reach many different types of people on many different levels. One who is strong-minded can convince people that their ideas are correct.

I still couldn't get any of what you asked me to do :/
In the first para, you are talking about "he" and then you are talking about "you." Stick with one or the other. I think you should use "he." Do not write about "you."

Okay, you are still just saying things that everyone knows. Someone who communicates well is more likely to be listened to. That is obvious. Only by citing meaningful books and articles about leadership can you say something that is meaningful and not obvious.

So, here is your homework: read that article by Prentice, and write a few sentences about what he teaches in the article. Then, write a few sentences about how you embody the leadership he describes.
