Leadership and Politics

Leadership and Politics

 A political leader has to stand in front of the voters and tell them what they intend to do when they are elected. Words mean things. An effective leader will be able to communicate those points clearly and forcefully.

A political speech has to be a persuasive speech, it has to keep the voters interested and it has to get the voter to feel like they want that politician to get into office and do what they just promised they will do.

To make this happen they have to believe something. It comes out better if they believe what they say. When politicians start hiring consultants to do polls and focus groups to determine what they believe by which way the wind is blowing they can’t be as convincing as they would be if they really believed what they were saying.

They have to keep it simple and they have to be specific. Mostly politicians talk in circles and avoid being clear and specific. They know most of our voters are uninformed voters and can be led in circles and they won’t realize it.

Clear specific statements that say “I will do this” and “I will do that” will be very effective in an honest election. They must draw a straight line between the problems and the solutions they are promising. An honest politician will persuade quite a few voters when they address the problems and identify a solution.

Their opponents have to address the solution in order to win a majority of the voters back. Weak opponents will only attack the politician with the solutions because they don’t have their own solutions to address the problems.

An honest politician with a clear vision that is communicated effectively will be hard to beat in any election.

The difficult quality is usually honesty, we need more honest and decent politicians, but they media scare them away.


That’s our loss!
