For young people who hope to gain career successes, being able to eventually reach leadership position is a suggestion of their success in the industry. However, there are debate regarding best method to nurture their leadership position. Some people say we should instill in a sense of cooperation rather than having them face immense competition in the modern society. However, i disagree with such argument.
It is important to note that a compotent leader need to display ability to cooperation and even ability to assist others in improving their cooperation. As a leader, being able to work closely with others in an efficient matter will send a positive message across the government body or businesses that everyone is serving a greater good and they will work together to achieve their goal. For instance, OpenAI’s CEO Sam Altman was already an talented scientist, but his cooperation with his team as well as Microsoft, made this small team efficient and has made progress in the AI industry much faster than any businesses, producing GPT model that are considered to be a game-changer to our current world. However, only by instilling in a sense of cooperation would not be sufficient. The society is highly competitive, with only knowing how to cooperate, leaders become too naive to navigate themselves in competitive environment and would be susceptible to competitors behaviors and being overtaken.
Thus, having a competition mindset is also crucial. Being competitive shows that the person deeply cares about what they are passionate about, it is a way of self-assuring that they will do whatever it takes to help the organisation to achieve their goal. This mindset will be crucial for all leaders, and the best way to develop it is through compeitition. You quickly learn what you are most passionate about and the fact that you can be in yout position, suggests that you also have the qualities for it. This is a significant confidence booster, which is what people need in a leadership position. Such confident will be spread to everyone else in the organisation, boosting morale and thus leading to increase productivity.
In addition, as having mentioned previously, leaders face immense competition nowadays and there would be competitors with malicious intent or content actions that need to be dealt with in a delicate manner. If young people have not been in such competitive manner, they would lack experience in such situations. For those who have been combating competition from peers, they can be more sensitive in whether there are issue going on, or malicious actions were conducted to hinder their own progress. Leaders can therefore become more mature and can handle more adversity will calmness and sharpeness. These experience is crucial for leaders as it helps them to navigate through the market and exploring their own competitive advantege more easily.
