I am a keen follower of leadership debates and discussions in
In the last few months a deputy leader of a political party got deposed by a Court of Disputed Return for election fraud committed by election officials.
Now the same leader is duped as a great leader. Then a comparison is made with other past leaders of a region.
However, no criteria are set out for any meaningful comparison.
I have assisted the people of Wosera in
Here are 10 criteria for determining great leader.
To be able to see into the future where and what Wosera people would be.
To be able to draw Wosera people to the vision.
3. Servant hood
To be of service to the Wosera people.
To lead with word and action.
To walk humbly with God and lovingly serve Wosera people.
6. Knowledgeable in government and politics of development
For removing obstacles know workings of government and policies and programs of government.
7. Wisdom of value-based leadership
Christian values and noble customs well understood and made part of life.
8. Noticeable role model
Inspire and enlist Wosera people to serve people.
9. Power of speech and word of wisdom
Oratory and wise use of language that captivates and motivates people for service.
10. People-centred development leader
Promoter of people as source, means, and end of development.
People have their own criteria.
Politics of popularity is not a criterion for a great leader. Model leader of all great leaders is Jesus Christ. He had lot of faith in His Father God and His greatness came from God. Great leaders are servants of their people.
Unfortunately PNG leaders are too egoistic. It is not a characteristic of leadership greatness.
