Principled Centered Leadership
After observing failed leadership models such as despots, whose nations tend to be economically challenged and lacking in human rights. I have come up with some basic principles for leadership that ensures the profiting of all within a nation.
- The valuing of human life
- The desire to create opportunities for all citizens to prosper economically and socially.
- Lead by not pushing downward but by pulling up. Motivate by example. If you expect citizens to work hard – work harder as a leader.
- Lead by treating others with dignity, respect and honor. This means that leaders should treat people as ends in themselves rather than as means to their own ends. This form of respect recognizes that citizens have goals and aspirations, and confirms them as human beings who have worth and value to the nation. This will lead to empathy, a willingness to listen, and tolerance for conflicting viewpoints.
- Ethical leaders ensure that justice and fairness are central parts of their decision making.
These principles incorporated in leadership will promote
- peace among the people
- a willingness to serve one another
- national pride
- a hope within of a better national future
