What makes a good leader?
A good leader must have the following -
I think if anyone needs to have good leadership it has to be Gordon Brown because he has to deal with all sorts of issues and deal with different people all the time.
Is leadership different for disabled people?
No. As I myself am a disabled person and in a wheelchair I just think sometimes it is more the case that people with disabilities don’t feel confident to put themselves forward and take lead. They may assume they are unable to provide good leadership and that people may look down at them.
Do disabled people experience barriers to leadership that non disabled people don’t experience?
Yes. I don’t think disabled people are given the opportunity to lead. Non disabled people don’t give them a chance to demonstrate the skills they have. Disabled people are full of talents and should be given the opportunity to get involved; they should not be singled out just because they have a disability.
