Crisis is the clear absence of leadership

A thoughtful take on leadership in the world today.


There may be a huge debate about the leader of the World. According to the Oxford online dictionary ‘‘The person who leads or commands a group, organization, or country’’ is the leader. For me, leader needs to have the quality and skills to tackle and resolve the problems without any or minimum loss. It is clear that the leaders who are working in a limited territory with certain interest can not lead the World. Because they have their own interest that contradict to others. Due to the narrow mindset, they can not offer wide hope for all. Sometimes they are even guided by the selfishness and stupid internal ego. So, such kind of personality are just leading part of the world, never be an unanimous.

The World is facing the biggest ever humanitarian crisis since WWII but the international community response has fallen far short of what is needed.
