Not All Leaders with a Vision Have Integrity
Why Empowerment Is Important
Successful leadership will provide structure or a sense of direction to a community when times are out of sorts. When leaders act in accordance to empower the community everyone thrives. However if the leaders act out of integrity by oppressing the people with the idea that only those in charge have the confidence to lead the community to success, they will gain followers not equals and ultimately diminish the power of the community.
This is why self-empowerment is important. If each individual is empowered then self-serving leaders will have no followers and thus only the leaders with integrity will lead the community and make decisions. An empowered community thrives because everyone holds themselves confidently and is their own leader first. This sort of empowered living is where success meets happiness. Where everyone knows their place because they’ve chosen it. However the success of a thriving community is not a final thing to be achieved but rather the art of leadership because one bad call or catastrophe can instantly change success to failure.
In the novel Rou Odyssey Look Beyond catastrophe strikes the powerful village of Gangleton in a way no sorcerer, oracle or wise person could have ever foreseen. The once empowered community of confident leaders quickly dissolves into a fearful lot of people. Most of them lacking the ability to be leaders for themselves any longer for they have lost all that they had achieved. The village instantly becomes a pile rubble with majority of its people caught in a state of fear and grief. This is when the unexpected peoples from the other lands come to give hope and protection to the people of Gangleton.
Impeccable timing the people of Gangleton thought of these highly confident leaders. “What an honor to have the protection of these empowered individuals with their advanced technology and promises of restored success.” And with these thoughts the once empowered and confident self-leading individuals chose a new path toward success. One which seemed quite easy but had them give up their most basic rights in order to fulfill the plan that would restore their glory. This is how the unexpected leaders gauged their own success. Their ability to confidently pledge to the village their proven success gave them all the empowerment they needed for the people believed in them.
