How do i start out this essay?
so its an essay for my religion class about leadership. It cant start like: What is leadership? but it can start with a question. I was thinking maybe a quote? We list the leadership sklls we have, want to improve and what situations we have had to use our leadership skills. Ideas? and if you get a quote can i have the recource? Also, our teacher said we should go over the top… So i was thinking like a story about someone’s leadership or something like that. What do you guys think?

to define leadership, use B.L.I.M.P.S.
what are blimps?
-balanced involvement
-active leadership
all six of these things put together will define the perfect leader.

if you have a story or something to back up any of these points, it would help 🙂

here’s a quote i liked:
“Leadership is a matter of having people look at you and gain confidence, seeing how you react. If you’re in control, they’re in control.”-Tom Landry

hope this helped 🙂
