Leadership is a broader concept that includes many styles and developments. A leader is to be defined as a person who establishes the vision, sets goals, motivates people and obtains their commitment to achieving the goals. Leadership roles are those that facilitate the execution of a strategy through building alignment and growing the capabilities of others. As we know each leader has their own leadership culture that is used within their country. For example, Brazil’s president leads the executive branch of the federal government and is the commander in chief of the Brazilian armed forces. As Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro was elected in 2019 he vowed to bring changes to the country.
According to our modules, “Brazil has a large set of natural resources (e.g., timber, metals) and has been expanding that advantage since at least 1985. The result has been a country that is now at the forefront of the world economy, and as such it has modernized to facilitate and take advantage of that status. That said, like much of South America, the economic disparity between the rich and the poor persists, which prevents the crime rate from declining (CIA, n.d., Moran, Harris, & Moran, 2012). (Canvas). There has been a lot of growing tension within Brazil due to the corruption that was going on between Congress and the judiciary in which they experienced a severe recession. When he was elected president he emphasized four changes such as land rights, education, the economy, and public security.
As we take a closer look we can see the systemic corruption in Brazil and this has been a major disadvantage for the country. According to the article, “in November, the Senate amended an initial draft anti-corruption bill to include a proviso allowing judges and prosecutors to be indicted for abuse of power. The vote on the bill had to be postponed, however, when the prosecutors responsible for pursuing the so-called ‘Car Wash’ investigation into inflated prices in government contracts (affecting among others Petrobras), threatened to resign if the Senate approved the draft legislation. Hundreds of congressmen have been named in the Car Wash investigation.” (2017). As Brazil has many natural resources to the world it amazing to see that Jair will change the face of the country from its dictatorship ruling. I believe that with Brazil’s new leader he will vow to root out corruption, crack down on crime and revive the economy in Brazil.
