Water is my personal favourite classical element because it exhibits some really important characteristics of leadership and that is what I am going to be talking about in this post.
A lot of people might have learnt this in science that water takes the shape of the container it is poured in. This characteristic/ ability is very important for a leader to have. Being able to mould oneself to adapt to the situation is essential for a leader. For example, everytime you might not get the ‘dream team’ that you want. In that case you will have to adapt and adjust according to your team and their strengths.
Another thing that water teaches us is that it can exist in all the 3 states of matter on earth, which means that a good leader should be flexible and capable enough to take up any task and solve any problem he or she may face.
Throughout this entire series of posts, I have spoken about how important lessons related to life and leadership can be learnt through nature. Most of the times, I have addressed a leader being a person who leads a team, but in real life, being a leader of your own life is very important. It is very important for you to realize that you need to start becoming responsible for your own work and actions. This way you can shape and mould your life the way you want to live it.
