to have two of each, and headings are not stacked on top of one another without text separating

them. http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/2009/07/five-essential-tips-for-apa-style-headings.html

making conclusions and gaining experience from those mistakes is highly likely to enable a

person to develop and become a leader in the future1. That is why, I believe, firstly, we,

young people, should not be scared of possible failures on the way to become leaders.

Certainly, we should understand that the mistakes we are making is going to serve us as an

efficient helpful tool to achieve leadership.

When asked about the question what makes a good leader some people might respond that

intelligence, knowledge, strictness and vision are associated with becoming leaders.

However, as far as I am concerned that there should be additional skills to achieved in

particular too. For example, self-confidence, self-awareness, motivation and social skills are

highly related to becoming a leader within an organization since becoming a leader is not all

about owning distinctive knowledge or intelligence2. Therefore, we are supposed to accept Commented [M19]: See prior comments about proper in-text

the fact that leadership ability encompasses a mix of those skills and traits as well as enough

experience in our career. The most importantly, leaders are supposed to own sufficient Commented [M20]: Delete this word.

In an organization, there is reasonable difference between managers and leaders in terms of

their responsibility, setting objectives, thinking, controlling and the role of them. For

instance, leaders create an inspiring vision, which are going to be implemented and turn the

attitude of subordinates into reality to achieve it whereas managers mainly deal with setting

and measuring goals in this case. Moreover, leaders are supposed to inspire and persuade

workers to reach goals. Leaders usually seek more innovations and techniques, which are

supposed to produce profitable results for their organizations while managers are dealt with

following existing structures, rules and systems set by their leaders. Besides, managers

always attempt copy the styles, job functioning, characters and even life styles of their Commented [M24]: Avoid the word always as there are

leaders. Leaders are able to get involved in long term decision making, taking risks, building

relationships and coaching. Contrarily, managers are expected to know how to control

subordinates, providing guidance for his or her subordinates, giving assistance their leaders to

make beneficial decision making and finding out systems to accomplish goals.

Taking the statement made by Dr Covey into consideration as true, I strongly believe that

leaders are not born with not only leadership skills but also other special and unique talents. Commented [M25]: This statement is not clear.

Life experience, self-confidence, hard work and other circumstances occurring in our life

play a vitally crucial role in reaching leadership over giant companies or other organizations.

Moreover, I am inclined to believe the existence of leadership formula. Looking through the

formula suggested by Dr Covey, the possible candidates to become leaders in the future are

supposed to inspire trust, determine concrete objectives, alignment of systems and seeking

talents as well as guiding the talents into right positions as Dr Covey stated. Because, there Commented [M26]: Excellent paraphrasing!

subordinates, indefinite objectives, right decision making on assigning staff into right

positions. Encompassing the mix of four principles, there will be great leaders, who are

expected to succeed in any fields.

positions. Therefore, it is regarded as a great example of leadership for me.
