LEADERSHIP: Servitude or Service?

Leadership entails the act of skillfully and willingfully taking up the responsibility of guiding, controlling, commanding, conducting, managing, influencing and taking good care of individuals who are entrusted in your hands with the sole aim of achieving a particular purpose or goals.


In Leadership, so many things comes into play; when selecting or electing a leader, there is need to look at for that person who can be committed to the work called upon to do.
Leadership takes into play some certain element of;
1. Studying your subjects.
2. Making firm policies and rules.
3. Creating a friendly environment.
4. Visionary and focused towards the work.
5. Complete devotion.
6. Building walls through teamworks.
7. Mustering ideas for now and the future.
8. Commanding respect and setting up an administrative tempo.
9. Purpose driven.
10. Mentorship etc.


Judging from what leadership tends to cover, one can rightly say that leadership tends to fashion the right steps towards building a community of mutual relationship. It can also be said of bridging the gap created by humans influence and acts.
However, it has been a sad commentaries nowadays that leadership has practically lost its grip and taste for true change and total overhauling. Leadership’s sense of selfless service has been found wanting. Slavery has become of the poor masses now as a result of no or incapacitated leadership.



Contrastingly, Even in the face of setting up a good leadership ascendency, one can really discover that the led has taken the leaders as tools of slavery and not service by condemning them to do all for them. Alas, in the leadership circle, everybody has a significant role to play. The led has theirs so as the ones we are leading. The led should know their works and the leading should equally do theirs. When, any part is found wanting, then, there will be lapses. Leadership tends to bring completeness when all hands are on deck. Synergy must be formed and maintained before goals will be achieved.
Failure to play your part absolutely turn leadership into mere servitude and not dignifying Service.
Think about it.
