Leadership is a big responsibility because to be a leader you need to have good judgment. As a leader you are probably being looking up to or followed by others. If faced with a difficult problem a leader needs to be able to work around the problem in a smart way or else they could lead others to do something wrong or in an unsafe way. As kids we are adventurous and are always looking for ways to have fun. If one kid who others look up to makes a bad decision they could lead others in a bad way and possibly put them in a dangerous situation. A good leader would be able to distinguish what is a good or a bad decision. They should even be able to tell others that they are making a bad decision when they are.
Likewise leaders also need to be able to stay calm and in control. Panicking and/or freaking out can also lead to bad decisions. I volunteer at the Austin Animal Center. There they teach the volunteers and staff that if you are ever in a situation where an animal gets loose or where animals are fighting that you need to be a good leader, stay calm, and stay in control of the situation. Freaking out in a situation like this could only make maters worse. In stead think before you act and focus on your safety.
It’s a big responsibility to be a leader you need to have good judgment and remember that you are being looked up to.
