The 14th Dalai Lama

Leader of Tibet

Tenzin Gyatso

One important event in the Dalai Lamas life was when he picked one of the items presented to him that was owned by the previous Dalai Lama making him a possible reincarnate of the Previous Dalai Lama. Many people describe Tenzin Gyatso (The 14th and current Dalai Lama) as a charismatic and wise man. One leadership characteristic Tenzin has is the wisdom to help those who seek enlightenment, he also has bravery which he showed when the Chinese invaded Tibet. He learned the trait of wisdom when he was chosen as the reincarnated Dalai Lama and started studying the tasks of a Dalai Lama and ways of Buddhism. His wisdom has impacted many of his followers with wise decisions for Tibet and advice for those who seek it. I don’t think I have any similar leadership characteristics with the Dalai Lama.The most helpfull trait Tenzin has is for being a leader is his calmness. If he wasn't as peaceful as he is now he would not be fit of being the Dalai Lama or leading people for spiritual guidance. One Thing about him that i would like to follow or try to emulate is his peace and ability to stay calm no matter what happens. No a Leader does not need to show all of his leadership traits because no leader has every single leadership trait, many people only need few leadership traits to be a great leader. One leadership quality i need to develope is the ability to stay calm when things go bad.
