Leadership ScenesScenes that demonstrate leadership and the impact leadership has on othersCARPE DIEMGather Ye Rosebuds:Carpe Diem DiemMeans Seize the day or make the most of the momentMr. Keatings approaches his curriculum with unconventional ideas to the students that strayed from the conventional practicesThe first lesson to his students was gathered from Robert Herricks famous lines: Gather the rosebuds while ye may,Old Time is still a-flying;And this same flower that smiles today,To-morrow will be dying.Alongside education, there is also a spiritual side and a duty that the students have to themselves to reach for more than just their education at Welton, to grow passion How is this relevant to leadership?Leadership takes more than just managing but adding to peoples life spiritually, that in return they will respect their leader, follow their leader and become successful. 12Contribute a VerseDiscussion: Why Do We Read and write poetry?

The Measure of a LeaderO Capitan My Capitan captain! My captain!Keating was a leader to his students.Lead them through high school and tough situations Encouraged them to try new things whether its following society standards or notFrom this scene of the movie, it goes to show people will follow a leader with great aptitude because that value the leaders honesty and integrity.

As leader in a business world, its important to educate your team and to motivate them to try new ideas, because new ideas are a working process to future success.
