This paper explains that good leadership starts with gaining the trust and respect of one's subordinates through the use of power and persuasion, which is a powerful tool in leading subordinates of many races. The author points out that 'balance leadership' leads to the perception that efficient leadership denotes more than just knowing what to do but rather knowing when, how and why one should perform the action. The paper relates that the success of leadership in a multi-raced society, which is gaining trust and respect, is an outcome of a partnership, vision, and enthusiasm of both the leaders and the men beneath them.

From the Paper:

"Civic Activism is much widely known among the youths of today. A young individual being asked to define what 'civil activism' is would respond as a profound commitment that expresses personal achievement and escalation. Thus, civil activism presents useful leadership opportunities. It teaches young individuals to take on tasks and responsibilities not only on a single-raced environment, but on a multi-raced as well; therefore, providing each individual the room to focus on different cultures and backgrounds. It as well gives way for a leader to reflect on the day-to-day challenges he faces that may shun him from making ghastly judgments."
