History of Fredrick Banting
What was Banting involved in that made him a leader?
What actions did Banting take to Show Leadership?
3 Leadership traits Banting applied
2. Lead from the back - and let others believe they are in front - As mentioned above, Instead of taking the Nobel Prize cash reward for himself, he shared his prize with Best, while McLeod shared his with Collip. This shows that Banting appreciated the team's effort and hard work and he gave them what they deserve. This makes him a great leader since he gave his assistants what they deserve instead of taking away their rights when they discovered the Insulin.
3. Courage is not the absence of fear - If It wasn't for Banting, a lot of people in the past and even today would have been dying from Diabetes. The Discovery of Insulin has been one of the greatest events that happened in the world and earned a lot of recognition since it is used to save people's lives. Since Banting came up with this idea, it shows that he cared about people's lives, and therefore, he ended up doing something good to prevent many from dying. He believed in himself, which can present him as a great role model for others when in need for motivation during any activity they fail at.
