You are lucky if you have a leader with 正直与勇气
Re: 领袖精神 (by 羊皮狐仙)
In any group, large or small, some individuals have more power and influence than others. the person with the most influence often assumes a position of prominence in the group and comes to be regarded as the leader. Social psychologists define a leader as the person who exerts the most influence in a group. Long time ago, primitive tribes chose their leaders on the basis of size, strength, or age. In modern times, researchers find the following traits associated with leadrship: intelligence (only moderate, though), verbosity (talkativieness), motives (energetic, autonomous, self-directed, somewhat narcissistic, and concerned with prestige and having an impact on others), and charisma ("gift of grace", Max Weber). In many occasions, the emergence of a leader is the result of charactersistics of (1) the leader, (2) the followers, and (3) the situation. Needless to say, 正直与勇气 are desired qualities for a leader, they are the elements of legitimate power, with which the leader will be more influential; with which a leader is more likely to be a transformational leader who is sensative to the desires of the followers and to bring forth changes according to people's desires.
I agree that everyone has the potential to be a leader, whether we choose to cutltivate and express the leadership in us is another issue.
