leadership Dec 27, 2022

Written by Ava Li, a BRITE youth spokesperson.

L is for listening. 

A good leader doesn’t just drone on and on about their ideas and their ideas only.

They don’t just open their mouth, but they open their ears.

E is for enlightening.

A good leader enlightens their crowd. 

Their message is heartfelt and powerful, inspiring people to take action and do what’s right.

A is for articulate.

How does a leader make their message enlightening?

Well, they thoroughly and accurately express their ideas, giving others a clear message.

D is for determination.

A good leader is determined to succeed.

Not just for themselves, but for the good of others. They work their butts off to achieve goals.

E again. This E is for enthusiastic.

A good leader puts enthusiasm in their work.

They use their enthusiasm to inspire others; they set the example.

Last but definitely not least, R is for responsible and rational.

A good leader takes responsibility for themselves and others. Their ideas have to be rational.

All the previous traits would be put to waste if the entire basis of a leader’s actions made no sense.

All in all, leaders bring others joy and comfort. They bring inspiration. 

They give their love.
