It is with deep sympathy that I write this blog post - yes I am one of those few people that had respect for the late Mrs. Thatcher!
I was born in 1989, so never saw this prime minister in action. I do, however, respect her for carrying out a job that is still dominated by men and regarded as a traditionally masculine pursuit.
Maggie enraged the country with poll tax and annoyed the nation when she took away free milk - but she did have many personality traits that must be admired. Mrs. Thatcher was determined and believed in herself - qualities that all good leaders must possess. She had faith and ensured she never gave up - if only more people could be like her!
We need more strong leaders. We need people who believe they can make a different to the world. Leading isn't just a job for men, women can lead with just as much determination and assertiveness. We all make mistakes and we all have regrets, however, learning is only achieved through mishap. If we understand that good leadership comes through strong belief, we will see how our own leadership skills can be developed effectively!
Anybody can lead, but not everybody can lead well. To lead one needs to understand people, to respect and make decisions for the greater good. Margaret Thatcher made mistakes, but, by jove she was a great leader!
