'Young people who will decide the future are taking notice and their new-found awareness expressed adeptly in social media and talked about in their homes will hopefully forge a new direction in the post-pandemic period'
, our streets are deserted and shops have come to a standstill, and many of our perceptions have been put into question.Take the case of an emerging class of new heroes. Instead of celebrities and sports icons, or politicians on podiums, we have begun to celebrate
people who have put their lives on the line. The frontliners who risk their lives in the service of others now seem to be heralded as the harbingers of hope in a world desperate for redemption.For the young in our midst, new paradigms are possible and new models of behavior with new metrics for achievement seem to be taking place.
We have begun to applaud those who serve quietly and heroically in our hospitals, in our fields and factories which continue to provide us food, in our newsrooms where media people continue to provide us with updates and useful guidelines on ways of coping with the unprecedented breakdown of life as we knew it.
Tectonic shift in public serviceBut, it is in the field of public service perhaps where the tectonic shift will be mostly felt in the years to come.If our young keep their eyes and ears open during these times of crisis, a new set of leaders who will be judged by a different set of criteria can emerge: leaders who lead by serving; leaders who serve by giving with heart and with competence, with integrity and with mindfulness, with the capacity to listen and work effectively with the people on the ground and with the courage to take risks and take decisive action.
At the onset of the health crisis we faced, women leaders such as vice president Leni Robredo took stock of the situation and chose as apriority concern to marshal citizens’efforts and resources to provide the needs of health workers. She did not only focus on providing protective personal equipment (PPE), face masks, food packets for healthworkers; she also made sure there are transportation services and temporary dormitories available for health personnel.
She also catered to the needs of more vulnerable communities and looked into the provision of food and the support for those involved in the supply chain of agricultural products to market like the vegetable growers who were part of the Angat Buhay program.
Enter the youngYoung leaders in local government units like Mayor Vico Sotto of Pasign assessed the needs of his constituency and put together a set of priorities for urgent action: food packs for poorer communities, salaries for municipal workers in furlough or on forced leave, transport for essential workers, sanitation of strategic places by drone, and other innovative actions.
Servant leaders in times like ours have become indispensable.Young people who will decide the future are taking notice and their new-found awareness expressed adeptly in social media and talked about in their homes will hopefully forge a new direction in the post-pandemic period.
Nothing is guaranteed though.Young people can make it their task to organize and mobilize, to raise awareness and take action so that henceforth we will have leaders who will lead by serving, who will serve by giving of themselves and take on causes of concern to the more vulnerable in our midst.
In so doing, we can credit this period of pandemic as a positive game-changer despite the pain and sorrow it has inflicted on our long-suffering people.– Rappler.comEd Garcia is a framer of the 1987 Constitution, and a former professor at the Ateneo, UP, and consultant for formation at the Far Eastern FEU.

Jean Navarette that is all opposite to your President's traits. Pero Ok lang ang people. Paano iyon? A good leader provides assurance in times of uncertainty. He provides clarity and order when there are confusion. He inspires courage among people and comfort them instead of creating more fear. And he does all of these things in full authenticity, sincerity and consistency.
A good leader does not sell his country to invaders. A good leader puts the welfare of the people before his friends and partymates. He accepts criticism and does not retaliate against his perceived political enemies.

ah good leader is not a jounalist from Rappler who spreads bias news report and personally inclined remarks A good leader is the one who can influence the followers to do good or even better on what he/she expects to be. Like our President Closing rappler... that would make a good leader. Charot! A good leader is the one who can influence his followers to do good or even better on what he/she expects to be.
A good leader is the one who can influence his followers to do good or even better to what he/she expects to be. Hmmm... - Draconian - Bawal i-criticize - May favoritism - Nagmumura - Salita nang salita kahit wala nang kabuluhan - Jokes about rape, manyakis - 'Shoot to kill' sa mga pasaway Traits na gusto ng DDS sa presidente, pero ayaw sa boss sa trabaho kundi magreresign Di ko gets
A good leader assures his people with measurable plans, shows timely & relevant actions taken, unites people toward a common goal, is accountable, decisive & always strives to do better despite criticisms & shortcomings. No BS, no threats, no excuses, just results! WELL SAID miss JEN NAVARETE... Agree with Jen Navrrette’s comment. But still, string and firm to his decision.
a good leader,even not competent enough in a certain field,knows how to select a competent & cooperative team to work for him/her & trust them..it's a big factor for a good decision making,surrounding urself w/d right people with d right kind of knowledge& wisdom to guide u 'The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not a bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.”
Something that Duterte does not have... yung hindi na kelangan mag deklara ng martial law dahil nanhingi na ng special power ilang days pa lang nakakalipas. hakhakhak A good leader also acknowledges God as the top man and seeks His favor and guidance in leading the people. pustahan part ito ng propaganda na ng dilawan tapos ireretweet ng dilawan c leni ang best leader kasi tinitira lage ni boylet kahit sa kotse lenirobredo
One steps down first if he/she truly knows and accepts that he/she can never deliver his/her responsibility. a good leader in the time of CoViD pandemic must be sincere, creative in finding ways to offer hope and comfort. Only wrong answers po ba? An op-ed piece from another Yellow Ulalo framer of the Cory Camote Constitution, brought to you only by Rappler.😂😂😂😂
Overhyped. Nothing special in him. Simple instructions p nga lng ala na eh watch out for 2nd&3rd wave of corona virus in the philippines Vinny_Me Samantalang si Joh Belmonte nawawala duterte drugs war is to protect young filipino and its future... Paid by the word? Agree Not just 'Young', better add 'GOD FEARING' people. You can be a young politician but without fear of the Lord, in serving His people you are nothing but a normal politician.
Only the Young VicoSotto 😍 to be a strong leader that every one follows... but how to do a good reporter is to report everything not just the mistakes of a single person but everything he do... remember that rappler its clear that you are one-sided reporter.... you supposed to be neutral Those who talk about the real facts. Presents the short term and long term plans and actions to be taken. No drama. No late night shows.
Good leader, yong sinusunod ng tao. Ang problema Di sya sinusunod maski ng mga supporters niya. Labas pa rin ng labas. VicoSotto
