DREAM OF A DIVERSE LEBANON
Can’t help but dream of a diverse Lebanon driven by harmony and united under the same flag, our Lebanese flag. It’s such a critical time and we must know what we want ! Let’s start by differentiating between good leadership and dangerous leadership so that we don’t end up supporting dangerous leadership! I did some research and tried to understand how, credible scholars, define good leadership and found a book called “Understanding Prime-Misterial Performance” by Strangio, Hart and Walter (2013). A critical parameter in defining the success of a leader is that he/she has “to maintain national unity”!!! So a good leader is one that brings diversity together and creates a common ground called National Unity. Dangerous leadership separates people, fuels anger between groups, ensures that the people are fragmented and afraid of each other, ensures that the people are not united because they can control them easier. The leadership we need to seek is one that unleashes people’s passion towards our country and each other, it is one that celebrates and rewards diversity it is one that institutes fair policies and systems that are consistently applied on all Lebanese regardless of religion. We deserve good leadership!
