I think that leadership is, arguably, the most sought after trait in the world. It is both sought after by individuals – because they want to be leaders – and by organisations, who are looking for good leaders. To be a leader, you must be calm, organised, rational and so on and so forth – the list of qualities is almost endless, because everyone has the capacity to be a leader in their own right. No matter what sort of leader you are, though, you must have the capacity to work with people. Moreover, you must have the ability to inspire these people and motivate them to reach their full capacity. It is these skills which make leaders such incredible persons. Let me highlight a few examples of motivational leadership in the modern world, so that you can understand what it takes to be a leader.


My first example of motivational leadership is seen on the sporting field. Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket captain, is arguably one of the best leaders in the world due to his ability to lead from the front. He is an incredible batsman who averages around 50 in all three formats of the game. For those of you that don’t know, that is a mighty fine achievement. He shows signs of motivational leadership because he is able to bring out the best in players around him. He is fiery on the pitch and he is always willing to show how passionate he is. I believe that Virat is an excellent example of motivational leadership in the modern world because he is a role-model for people who look up to him, and because he leads his team from the front.


My second example of motivational leadership comes from the well-known Tibetan Leader, the Dalai Lama. The reason that he is such a great leader is because he has campaigned for many years in order to promote peace, democracy and nonviolence. He has also done so with a constant smile on his face, and always with the best of intentions. His display of motivational leadership is exemplary for anyone who is attempting to bring peaceful change, therefore making him a legendary figure.


These two people are, in my opinion, completely different from one another. Virat Kohli is a fiery, competitive figure who is always looking to bring the best out of his teammates. On the other hand, the Dalai Lama is entirely peaceful, spiritual and calm in his attempt to bring tranquility to the world. Nevertheless, despite their differences, these two individuals are great leaders who have the capacity to bring change into the world. For these reasons, they must be accredited for the work that they have done.
