Responsibility as a leader Score: 3 July 24th, 2018 by Shahab Bahreini

Since I've been a child, I've always tried to play a leader rule in games and gather people together to work as a team. Be a leader makes me feel stronger and passionate to handle problems.

Leader position is comes with great responsibility. A leader should know well his/her team's potentials and understand its member abilities. Dare to risk and have a excellent strategy for future and addressing problems is the another factors which should be considered in a leader characteristics. Charisma is also important, it cause people follow the leader and trust him/her. Therefore with considering all of these parameters be a leader is not easy and need a passion to fit in. By the way I feel, I have ready enough to play this part and it is more appropriate for me than be a member in a team.

It is crystal clear that experience play an crucial rules to be leader. In my age, and with my all of my experience and strong desire to lead, the best choice is to make a team and settle a good end to achieve it by team work. I'm 30 and need to make a change in my life and do a big job. For example, establishing a small company to produce smart electronics chipsets have enough excitation for me to start.
