Leaders commonly feel they need to intimidate their followers to accomplish their goal or purpose.
However, this style of leadership will only create a temporary and false sense of accomplishment. In the end, people do not want to follow such leaders.
If they do, it is only because they feel trapped. Hope is lost and there is no purpose for the future.
People should not be intimidated by you and, as a leader, you should not intimidate those who have entrusted themselves to you.
Spiritual leaders guide people to heaven and they need a leader who gives them hope!
