Lord of the Flies- Management
A leader can be described as somebody who guides, leads or is in command of others. In many experience and secret books there is a leader. There are several types of leaders, however in either case, they have unique qualities that make them important to the book. In Lord of the Flies, by William Golding, a group of young school kids get stranded on an island. It is required of them to choose a leader that will be head of the boys and keep things in line so that they can all endure long enough to be saved. The young boys select Ralph as their leader.
Judging by his qualities, Ralph is the best leader that they could have selected. Ralph is civilized, arranged, and encouraged. Being civilized isn’t constantly great when one is on their own in the wild or on an island for instance, however in this unique it is essential. Ralph shows that he is civilized enough to deal with the circumstance he is in. Versus being savage like the other young boys, Ralph’s main goal is to make huts and do work that will make the boys’ chances of being rescued higher. The hunters are all too concerned with eliminating animals, which is very important, however the young boys go over the edge with it.
Ralph does not like seeing the hunters dance and chant when they eliminate or are trying to kill their food. One chant from the book that doesn’t make Ralph delighted at all is, “Kill the pig, cut her throat spill her blood. (pg 63)” Being civilized makes Ralph a great leader and likely for the boys to select him as their leader since being civilized is necessary when in a situation where it is necessary to remain calm, create ideas, and make great choices. Another quality Ralph has is being arranged.
From the first day when the young boys got to the island Ralph was always attempting to organize every body and get whatever in order to make things easier. An example of him being organized is when appoints various jobs to various individuals for example when he makes a group of hunters who will be the ones to go and look for food, and designates Jack as their leader. It is very important for a good leader to be organized due to the fact that if Ralph did not display this quality as leader, everyone would just be running around and not listening to any person.
The island would be very, even more than it is now, un-orderly, and not much would get achieved. Other instances in Lord of the Flies where Ralph reveals that he is arranged is when he blows the conch. When he feels there needs to be a conference, he blows the conch and everyone comes. This is an intelligent method to gather everybody. Organization is a crucial management quality for these reasons. Finally, Ralph is really encouraged. Motivation is among the most crucial leadership qualities.
A leader has to want to accomplish higher and accomplish numerous things and in order to do this he/she must be really encouraged. In this unique, Ralph is inspired to be rescued. When the boys let fire that is expect to be signaling “assistance” to passing ships head out, he gets extremely angry. Also, Ralph worries the fact that everybody must be helping to make huts for shelter. Rather, the young boys dance around, play video game, and splash in the water. Jack in motivated to get essential things done on the island in order to survive while the other kids appear to be inspired to have a good time.
Individuals and followers tend to admire and follow in the leader’s footsteps, so being inspired is a vital quality when in charge, or leading, others. Specific personality traits predetermine an individual for leadership. Depending on what the circumstance is, different individuals are more fit than others to be the leader. Management isn’t in a person, but rather in an entire circumstance and how any given person suits it. In the situation that the kids are taken into, in Lord of the Flies, Ralph is a good leader judging by his qualities. He is civilized, organized, and really inspired.
