Leadership and Approach “Approach each person with the idea of helping him or her solve a problem, or achieve a goal, not of telling them what to do,” -Unknown. Approach is a leadership quality that is often overlooked, although it is extremely important. Not all humans are the same, you have cultural differences, ethnicity differences, language barriers, and different perspectives. Some people work well under pressure, while others may have a mental breakdown. To be an effective leader you need to know how to accommodate these people.

Duncan, for example, could be taken either way. He obviously had a good method working with his troops because they all loved him and were loyal, along with the citizens. On the other hand, he was a little too trusting of his Thanes which resulted in his death. Lady Macbeth is the next character. Her technique is all-around bad. First of all she asks the witches to strip her of all feminine instincts, then goes on to plan out and help commit Duncan’s murder. She could have taken a different manner to that situation, such as going to talk to the witches about the prophecies they told her husband or even talking with Duncan. Macbeth’s style is the worst of them all. He did not only kill Duncan, but he hired people to kill both Banquo and Macduff’s family. Macbeth could have taken so many different approaches in these situations. He could have gone and talked out a solution with all three of these people.

You will work hard until the day you die, and then you will become dust again. I used dust to make you, and when you die, you will become dust again,” (The Holy Bible, Genesis 3:19). Another example of God’s leadership and power over people is the story of Noah’s Ark. God flooded the whole earth because of the corruption of mankind, “I will destroy all the people I created on earth. I will destroy every person and every animal and everything that crawls on the earth. And I will destroy all the birds in the air, because I am sorry that I have made them,” (The Holy Bible, Genesis 6:7). Noah and his family, with a boat full of 2 of every species of creature were the only living beings that got to survive the flood. God’s actions could be interpreted as harsh, but it’s the same concept as your parent's
