What makes a good leader?

Anybody can be a good leader, but leaders usually have many great qualities that may help them show that they are a good leader. Some qualities are:

  • Passion
  • Selflessness
  • Courage
  • Positivity
  • Kindness
  • Motivated

Louis Riel

I believe that Louis Riel was a great leader. He fought long and hard for the rights of the Metis people. He was extremely motivated to do what he believed was right, and was helping so many people. Even in some of his last moments, during his summation, Reil advocated for the Metis people, and was even upset when they accused him of insanity, the only option for him to escape execution. The reason why he returned to Canada in the first place is because the Metis people need Louis Reil to be a leader, and he knew that too. This is why I think he was a great leader.

Louis Reil & Craig Keilburger

For my comparison I've chosen Louis Riel and Craig Keilburger. I've chosen both of them because they have both done so much for many people. They're both extremely driven men, who have or are devoting their lives to help people, and will continue to help people once they've died.
