A good leader Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Pedus, Australia Dec 17, 2006
Human Rights , Media , Peace & Conflict   Poetry


A good leader is an agent of change,
resilient and forward thinking.
A good leader understands the hopes
dreams and aspirations of his people.
A good leader believes in transparent
honesty and accountability.
A good leader works towards the greater
good of his people.
A good leader shares in the power
of the people to choose.
A good leader is tactful, frugal,
responsible and responsive.
A good leader does today
what others are thinking of tomorrow.
A good leader is not afraid of mistakes
no matter how minute they may be.
A good leader paves the way
even for generations unborn.
A good leader has an avalanche of courage
even to offend allies and friends in the course of justice
A good leader is judged by the content of his character and integrity of intent.
A good leader, above all,
is a good follower
