The president is not just the leader of the country. They are also the symbol and representative of the country. This means it is not only what they show to their people but also other nations.
It is because of that reason we found ourselves asking what the president should be like? An additional question to that would be, how will you want to be represented?
Being a politician is not about them or what they want but what is best for the people. That is the same for the president. Sure, they are the leader of the country but being a servant means doing duties for others, and their goal is to know the needs of its people and knows the way how to meet them. It is not what the people will do to them but what they will be doing for them.
2. Focus on the Needs
As said before, the president’s goal is to know and meet the needs of the people. This means they need to focus on them. This means that they have to listen to what the people are saying. Who is the best in knowing what they need but them? It will surely have a lot and different and as the president, it will be their duty to know what will be the best for all. But no matter what, they should listen and consider all of them.
As they are focusing on the needs of others, they should be thinking of themselves less. Being humble also means admitting their wrongs. So if something went wrong, not only they should be honest about it, but they should also ready to admit and face whatever the consequences will be. This just shows that they are ready to make things right for the good of the people and nation and not them.
4. Intelligent and Smart
It is not just about having good credits and grades. As said before, they should focus on what is best and needs of the people, so they should know what it will be. They should also know solutions to crises and conflicts. It is not that they would solve issues by themselves but being smart also means knowing someone who will depend on and will be a big help for them. This would mean choosing those who have the same focus as for them, and that is to do what is best for the people.
It is said that the president is also the main representative of the country, and that is why it is important for them to know matters and maintain a good relationship with other countries. The reason for this is because every country has its needs and having a good relationship with one another means they will be able to help one another whether it be a crisis or just simply a country’s growth.
With all the above-mentioned traits and characteristics, this will sum up that people will rely on the president. It does not mean that the president will do all the work. The people should also do their parts but so do the president.
