As in the story when he escapes from Cyclops cave he showed that he was brave and a great strategist when he poked Cyclops eye with pike of olive, he decided not to kill him because if he killed Cyclops, he would not be able to get out of the cave. This also shows he was wise and cleaver and able to think about the situation before doing anything. At the time when Cyclopes is making the meal of his friend he bravely said “Here is some drinks for you which we carry” (9 ;). These are some qualities which I can say I possess. His impulsiveness with Cyclops almost destroyed him and his companions but his bravery and clever strategy were able to save almost all of them.

The Odyssey The Odyssey is an epic poem about spiritual journey and how it can bring out the hero in people, and if they are true to themselves, they will always pull through. Odysseus is put through so much struggle and pain, but in the long run it actually ends up helping him become mentally and physically tough by testing his faith in his skills. The King of Ithaca finds himself in many great challenges where he proves to everyone around him, along with himself, that he has found his true identity. Odysseus has always been an honorable and respected man in his small kingdom, and many citizens are starting to see the number of capabilities he has, along with something inside of him that not even Odysseus knows he has. For instance, Odysseus remains strong for his crew, even in the toughest situations, like keeping his men under control while they are crossing paths with Scylla, so the adventurers have some kind of stability.
Odysseus understood that if he just wounded the Cyclops, himself and his men might the risk the chance of being stuck in there forever so instead he gets his men inspired to get the Cyclops drunk and hide underneath the bellies of his sheep. Odysseus is also smart when recognizing when and how he should trust his crewmen. He has a well tolerance for listening but learned quickly that his men do not. He also keeps secrets to which he shouldn’t because it would’ve stopped the crew men from opening the bag of wind but the fact that he was capable of keeping everyone alive, proves that Odysseus was intelligent, fair and fearless. He proved himself clever when he gave the Cyclops his name as Nohbdy so when the cyclop screamed “Nobody hurt me!” Odysseus and his men would remain harmless.
He was promoted to the manager of worldwide safety. His great leadership skills and motivational techniques had put him in this new position. Kurt was very excited for the job and ready for it, but he was not too familiar about any safety tasks that could improve the workplace. Kurt was so excited about the promotion that he would call John Sullivan and tell him the great news. John Sullivan and Kurt were good friends that were very comfortable with each family.
Odysseus also hatches an ingenious plan here – first intoxicating the Cyclops with wine so he falls fast asleep, and then blinding him with a sharpened wooden pole. The following describes the moment that Odysseus and his men carry out the plot to blind the Cyclops – ‘Seizing the olive pole, they drove its sharpened end into the Cyclops’ eye, while I used my weight from above to twist it home, like a man boring a ship’s timber with a drill which his mates below him twirl with a strap they hold at either end, so that it spins continuously.’ Also, just before the Cyclops falls asleep, after drinking the wine, he asks Odysseus his name, to which he replies, ‘my name is nobody.’ This is a clever trick and a show of good
Loyalty and Intelligence Summary: Loyalty and intelligence are major themes throughout "The Odyessy" by Homer [pic] Throughout Homer's book "The Odyssey" the ideas of loyalty and intelligence keep coming up again and again. They both show up because it takes both to get anywhere in life and especially like a journey that Odysseus went on. Without loyalty or intelligence Odysseus would have not completed his trip alive. He kept himself safe and his crew until the crew was eaten by Charybdis. Both were necessary and both were used and shown.
Standing up for what is right and fighting to achieve your goals. To me those are all great things that makes the greatest leader of the country. Sometimes being a good leader means that you have to sacrifice family and friends and the ability to not be afraid of the unknown. Being honest as a leader makes a lot of difference. It makes citizens want to trust you , it makes them want to trust the promises that you've made as a president or leader, or even a mayor.
Effective Human Resource Management As someone rightly said, good leaders don't just lead, they bring out the best in everybody else too.
