The trainer, quoting Nelson Mandela, businessman Jim Rohn, said that one of the indispensable features of a leader was that a true leader must always follow the people, be with people in dangerous situations.

It was emphasized that leaders should be human, but not weak and at the same time should be strict, but not harsh. A man could be a good manager, but not a good leader. To be a good leader, you need to have a good manager character.
