Iwould like to agree that a neuroleader is someone who self-aware andhas a proper understanding of the cause and effect. Since mychildhood, I have known and interacted with a number of leaders(Karin, 2007). Each of the leaders has different leadership styles.However, of all the leaders, I would like to qualify PresidentBarrack Obama as a neuroleader.
Ibelieve that President Obama is a neuroleader because of hisleadership styles, policies, and personal lifestyles. In terms ofleadership, President Obama is a focused leader who is people driven.During his rein in office, President Obama established a good regimethat accommodated everyone (Zak & Brad, 2016). He came up withnew and brilliant policies that made positive changes in the lives ofAmericans. For example, his economic, political, and climate policieswere so brilliant and beneficial to everyone (Izhak, 2014). Hisadministration was inclusive and people driven. In terms of personallife, President Obama is an ideal neuroleader. He is a transparentleader who has been self-conscious. He has been a great family manwho has managed to raise and keep a happy family. He is aware of whatto do at any given time. He knows his boundaries and separatespolitics from family matters. This justifies why he has managed toestablish a good relationship with everyone (McDonald, 2015).
Inconclusion, becoming a neoroleader is not a simple task. It is achallenging task that can only be accomplished by self-conscious andfocused leaders who are keen on promoting innovativeness,transparency, and concern for others. It is for this reason that Isay that President Obama is a typical neuroleader.
