Passion, Stamina, Leadership Skills, and Attitude

Passion, stamina, leadership skills, and attitude are important aspects that determine the characteristics of an individual. However, no individual can have all the positive characteristics. Most of the leaders have a combination of positive features and negative characteristics. This feature mainly defines the kind of a leader an individual will be. A character with passion means a person who has some intense feeling about a certain topic regardless of whether it is a devotion to cultural passion or ideology. For instance, impressionist hip-hop or painting.

Passion

A passionate individual is a person who tries to convince other people that his or her preferred topic is important and worthy the attention. From the book “Our Iceberg is Malting” by Kotter and Rathgeber, Fred is the character with an active passion. In the book, Fred takes Alice to down into the waters and points out fissures and other deteriorating symptoms caused by melting ice. This is an active passion from Fred because he is concerned about the welfare of the entire group (Kotter & Rathgeber 2016). Moreover, Fred feels relieved as another individual had shared his worries, but he felts worse as he did not have the solution to the problem. Consequently, in the book he tells Alice that he will prepare a presentation to convince other leaders about the problem. Sniff in the book “Who Moved My Cheese” shows positive passion. This is because he can detect and respond to the changes taking place in the environment more quickly. Primarily, he gets excited by creating a new thing and likes convincing other characters that they are better (Johnson 1998). Importantly from the book “Fish! Sticks” Dan brings out the active passion. This is because Dan appreciates his coworkers and makes them feel an important part of the organization. Importantly, he finds time to play with other employees in the process of making them part of the team (Lundin, Christensen, & Paul 2003). On the other hand, Hem shows negative passion. He is left behind because he cannot accepts to move with change. Primarily, he sees change as a threat to people like him who excels in stability and control.

Leadership skills

Leadership skills are essential components that enable leaders to make informed decisions about particular problems. Some leadership skills include the potential to inspire, delegate, and communicate effectively. In the book “Our Iceberg is Malting” by Kotter and Rathgeber, Alice show some positive leadership skills. For instance, when Fred comes to him and requests her that he explain some of the problems they are facing as a result of the melting ice she listens and accepts to go and see the problem (Kotter & Rathgeber 2016). Furthermore, after noticing the problem, she agrees to notify other leaders of the problem and challenges they are facing. Haw from the book “Who Moved My Cheese” shows the character of active leadership. This is because he can connect with other characters in the book and he follows Scurry and Sniffs all the while but he is also concerned about Hem how he is doing (Johnson 1998). Primarily, he leaves behind the writings on the wall for Hem to follow. This shows that he is concerned about the welfare of other people which is an important characteristic of a leader. Loonie from the book “Fish! Sticks” shows negative leadership skill (Bridges 2003). This is because of his fishmongering skills that are evident although the story.

Stamina

Louis on “Our Iceberg is Malting” by Kotter, and Rathgeber shows an individual with active stamina. This is because he is very patient and does not make any rash decision that can have adverse effects on the community. Consequently, he is very calm. For instance, when the problem is presented before him ask for proof before he can call the meeting to discuss the issue. Scurry, on “Who Moved My Cheese” indicates the character of positive stamina. This is because of the ability to work from early to late, and he gets frustrated because of obstacles on the way (Johnson 1998). The professor, in the book “Our Iceberg is Melting” shows some real stamina by supporting Alice and Fred in the activity of proving that the ice is melting and that their community is in danger (Kotter & Rathgeber 2016). Bill, on the book “Fish! Sticks” portrays negative stamina as he likes to use the traditional leadership styles. Importantly, he does not want to appreciate the power of change that could help people on organization improve their skill (Lundin, Christensen, & Paul 2003). He is very much obsessed with the old characteristics of traditional leaderships.

Attitude

Buddy from “Our Iceberg is Malting” by Kotter, and Rathgeber shows positive attitude when he helped convincing and talked to the teacher to speak about bravery to the young people instead of scaring them away. This reveals that Buddy believes in a positive attitude in strengthening the young people. Similarly, from the book “Fish! Sticks” Dan brings out the positive attitude. This is because Dan appreciates his coworkers and makes them feel appreciated and important part of the organization (Lundin, Christensen, & Paul 2003). Importantly, he finds time to play with other employees in the process of making them part of the team. The Old Mule in the book “The Mule in the Well” shows positive attitude when the owner and the neighbors try to bury him alive. The mule employs a strategy of shaking the dirt off its back and the mechanism that was to bury it ends up saving its life (Myers, Fisher, Gewehr, Webster, & Eason 2002). NoNo other hand shows negative attitude. When Fred Prepared an iceberg to demonstrate the melting is NoNo say that no ice burg is melting. He does not know wat to accept the fact that he was wrong during the forecast.

Fred from the novel “Our Iceberg is melting” has nearly all these characteristics. We can see he has active leadership skills when he creates an ice burg to demonstrate the problem they are facing. Moreover, he does not criticize the comments of NoNo by saying that the no iceberg is melting. Importantly, stamina and positive attitude come out when he takes Alice down beneath the water to show her the problem they are facing.

In conclusion, passion, stamina, leadership skills, and attitude are important aspects that determine the characteristics of an individual. People should act in ways they do not affect the freedom and the welfare of their colleagues. Such features are portrayed by Fred and other characters in the four books indicating that it is important that people look out for each other. Furthermore, it is important to accept the other dark side of the people as it helps in opening their eyes and our flaws and making other people’s character high.
