Being a leader is not just the ability to give commands or share out work, it is also the ability to motivate others and motivating others does not come easily. It takes several attributes that need to be mastered.
According to Arthur E. Puotinen, retired dean and author of the book Lead with Courage: Unleash the Lion in You, the attributes of a good leader - Strength, Courage, Power, Royalty, Dignity, Authority, Dominion, Justice, Wisdom, and Ferocity - can all be learned from a lion. Lions are social animals that form groups that are called prides. While one is considered the leader of the pride, other members play important roles such as hunters or cub protectors. Thus, the lion as an animal is one that every leader and aspiring leader should strive to learn from.
Lead with Courage: Unleash the Lion in You is an inspiring and informative self-help book with personal stories of Dr. Puotinen and numerous strategies that can come in handy for every readers journey in life.The book draws a concrete parallel between a lions life and survival in the jungle and a leaders challenges and crisis in life. Each chapter also shares several reflection topics to ponder upon.
Different examples of courage are portrayed in the book from the authors formative experiences such as family life and heritage, school and college days, courtship and marriage, teamwork and partnership, international exchanges, and so many other stages in life where one could gain courage and resilience.
According to Dr. Puotinen, he wrote the book for many reasons including preserving the heritage of his family and sharing the legacy of lessons in leadership which he learned from ministry, educational administration and business endeavors. Lead with Courage: Unleash the Lion in You serves not only as a self-help book to leaders at various levels but also as a spiritual guide to resolve conflicts and challenges in life.
When fear, apprehension and worry are weighing down your spirit, it is the time to unleash the courageous lion in you and become the person you are destined to be, shares Dr. Puotinen.
