Everyone has a different idea of what makes a good leader. However, most agree that merely having a particular job or position doesn't define a good leader – it is more about a person's ability to work with people and motivate them to achieve an outcome. A true leader has the ability to inspire and gain respect while setting and achieving goals.
A community needs direction and policies to keep them moving towards their goals. You don't have to be a dictator to make proposals. You can make proposals, then listen to people's responses and then make appropriate changes. Someone needs to take responsibility for moving the whole group forward. So the Somali Bantu Community Living in Vermont is here by introducing the community leaders who in Leadership use their courage, creativity and capacity to inspire participation, development and sustainability for strong communities. They are elected by the Somali Bantu Community of Vermont. All the Somali Bantu Community individuals 18 and older elect their community leaders. They serve six years and can be re elected for another six years. Community leaders take responsibility for the well-being and improvement of their communities. These people are elected to improve their community, they have something to contribute and they don't wait around for someone else to get the job done.
