RIGHT LEADERSHIP.Eight Paragraphs for Leader.1.Ours is an organized society and any organization, for the accomplishment of its objectives, requires efficient leadership. Title of leadership must reflects the real spirit which leads the ship , or otherwise leadership is being mocked and undermined. Efficient, dedicated leadership and resources, both natural and human, are requisites for a nation to develop and progress. The days when people could be driven are long gone and today people are led. An educated and sophisticated group of people need an intelligent and forward-looking leader. The students have their teacher to follow, the family has their father, and the nation has its political leader.2.The leader is the symbol of unity. The president is symbolic of the links that bind the citizens of the nation. It is often leadership that strengthens an organization and makes it vigorous and viable. Often, when a leader is discredited, the organization is thrown into a minor tumult and rival leaders vie to checkmate one another. Where the leader is not acceptable to the majority, the members will be divided, and a fragmented organization will be an ineffective one.3.In school or nation, the Principal or President is the leader of the teachers or ministers and the students or citizens. Where he fails, the mental, physical and moral welfare of the students or citizens will be neglected.The teachers or ministers look up to their leader for guidance and leadership. having won the confidence of the teachers or ministers, he is able, with their help, to create an ethos which is so vital to the effective functioning of the school or nation. At home, the head of the family would be able to foster in the children the virtues that he displays.4.Leadership should be dynamic and forward-looking. The leader should be able to adapt his policies to the changing circumstances and find new solutions to old problems. When he is conservative and unwilling to change because of his traditional beliefs, he becomes ineffective as a leader and loses his hold on his members. The smug satisfaction which a leader enjoys when he comes into the lime-light should not make him complacent and idle. By his dynamism, new followers are to be won and opponents transformed into friends and followers. He should be quick to abandon out-moded and decadent ideas.You can also read the campaign website @ www.tkl2011.com
RIGHT LEADERSHIP.5.A Leader should be patient and tactful. A Leader in a hurry often fails. A Leader should be aware of the susceptibilities of his people-citizens and should not jibe at their weaknesses. The measures that he adopts should not run counter to their beliefs and customs for the success of any plan depends on the involvement of the majority of the members-citizens. Arbitrary decisions can lead to failure. A leader should be resourceful and must be capable of sound judgement. He must be tolerant of the weaknesses of others and should be prepared to accept criticism.6.Leadership should be efficient and intelligent. A good academic qualification is a"sine qua non" of leadership. The intellectual acumen that usually goes with a high standard of education is necessary to find solutions to the many problems that he meets with. Almost all leaders have the gift of the gab. With the ability to speak fluently and impressively he is able to win over his members citizens and influence their thinking.7.Leadership should not be corrupt in all aspects of private and public life. A mercenary is easily spotted and isolated. Corruption precedes decay and disintegration. The leaders that shine forth in the political horizon today are those who have forsaken selfishness and self-interest. They are human-centered and altruistic. To be admired at home the leader should be admired abroad.8.Bereft of an efficient, honest, fair-minded, courage, positivism, intelligent, public-centric leader, a nation falls divided and an association or an organization becomes static. Where the very existence is threatened, a dynamic and efficient leader can create calm out of chaos and help the nation to progress.

Great. "The people form the Constitution", the PAP always think they form it. It is not sacred like the Holy Book, cast in stone to be "the 11th Commandment of God".Simply said, the people could make changes to the constitution to suit modern times and requirements, and ditch the obsolete parts of it that are irrelevant now.Relate the Constitution to the role of the President to the guardian of our Reserves. Does it mean the President is powerless even to express concern and request for a detailed report of how MAS, our Regulator, lost 10.9 billions last financial year?PAP Govt has lost the moral integrity to lead the country if such a huge loss is hurriedly swept under the carpet.Unbelievable that all those lost billions are all due to S$ appreciation.We need answers from MAS and its ex MD, Heng Swee Kiat. He can't just hide behind the Ministry of Education, washing his hands off the whole matter. Else people would think he simply has no guts to face the music, so has to hide somewhere to save his poster boy face. In other countries, someone that incompetent has to stand before TV audience, apologise and resign in disgrace.
