A good leader.Face the challenge.Cowered behind a chair.
What is a good leader? Is it someone could get thing done or someone who could make a different? Is it someone who have thousands of follower who will listen and follow what he said or someone who have followers that will listen and follow only the right thing that he said and defended only the view that is right? Is it someone who listen blindly to what his advisor said or someone who is not afraid to decide on the right thing although his advisor prompted otherwise?
As a leader we must face the challenge. Challenges comes every minute of your life as a leader. Do you succumbed to it or do you face it bavely? You cannot accept the role as a leader and not shoulder the weight of your decision on a challenge. You cannot refuse to continue just when you felt like the resistance from others is greater that support you had. But you cannot continue to lead when you already seen that the damage you brings in is proportionately greater than the good you introduce. As such, you are no longer a good leader and you must lay you armour down and let someone with newer sinuity to carry on.
To cowered behind a chair is not the quality of a leader. To keep on repeating that the chair you hold is backed by all when secretly you know that these bigger and stronger hyenas are gnawing on the chair legs to tore it down, is just wrong. You should leave when you know the battle is nearing to a lost, and plan a better strategy to win the war. You should not believe the colourfully-painted canvas that the people who seem close to you show. You should learn to accept that you did wrong and sometimes to make it right all you have to do is leave.
