Leadership on the Final Frontier Inspiring people to take action is the mark of a true leader. Antoine de Saint-Exupery once said, “If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.” James Tiberius Kirk in the movie Star Trek: Into Darkness exemplifies this characteristic of leadership. Kirk’s cumulative actions and behaviors as captain of the USS Enterprise inspire his crew to follow him through the perils of the last great frontier that is space. Kirk is a leader because he always wins.
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.
Odysseus and his crew went into the cave and waited for the giant, hoping the giant would treat them well. But the Cyclops named Polyphemus was evil and he ate two of Odysseus crew.

Also, he puts his crew in jeopardy when he boasting how he tricked Polyphemus.
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.
He thinks of building shelters to protect them and to start a fire for their rescue. He becomes friend with Piggy, the fat boy that receives taunts and teases from the other boy, and gets used to rely on Piggy's intellectual reasoning. Ralph is brave when the occasion presents it, but he really miss for the secure world of adults, especially when order starts to break down on the island. He dreams about a rescue and insists that the signal fire always has to burn so that they can be seen. Ralph considers that the main reason for the disorder on the island is Jack, the antagonist and representation of evil in the novel.
After leaving victorious from the Trojan War, he possesses a sense of pride and invincibility, raiding cities and fueling his need for glory. Yes, Odysseus’s attitude allows him to act cleverly and quickly when placed in tough situations, but it is his foolishness that gets him into dangerous positions in the first place. One example is his encounter with Polyphêmos, the Cyclops. While in the monster’s cave, his companions wish to take needed supplies and leave in order to avoid any trouble that might arise. In spite of this, Odysseus refuses to retreat; he is curious to see what the creature has to

Ralph represents the goodness left on the island, while Jacks worst got the best of him.
