The responsible leader knows that the best friend, guide and supporter of a person is his own self. Self reliance is the way to success through confidence.
One has to improve through one's own efforts. No one else can develop any one.
One has to develop himself and others can assist and contribute in that effort.
Actually people let themselves down because they do not endeavour for self continuously but also encourage his own team members for their self development.
On that process he becomes an effective facilitator and supporter.
Actually one becomes one's own best friend or worst enemy depending on whether he is controlling his mind or whether his mind is controlling him.
The mind is a creative but wavering companion. A controlled and stable mind is the best friend. An uncontrolled and wavering mind is one's worst enemy.
The responsible leader is in full charge of his own mind through his own intellect.
Thus his creativity is sound and his innovations can be implemented.
The responsible leader creates an atmosphere where feelings and emotions are harmonised and where people contribute with peaceful minds.
He creates such a harmony through his caring and love to all member.
In fact the responsible leader is a reliable friend.
MIND THE MIND AND BE ONE'S OWN FRIEND.
