Please have a look at my essay and post some feedback. Thanks!!

Leaders are created by the demands that are placed on them.
Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with 
the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and 
supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement 
might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position.
Over the course of human race there is one group of people 
that constantly leaves a mark in history - leaders. Whether political 
or corporate they find a unique way to make an impact. Allthough,
this is is not due to some special characteristic or fate. It rather 
because leaders have a remarkable virtue to face the challanges and 
respond to the demands that are placed on them. 
In order to illustrate the above, we need to understand what premisses
create leaders. A group of people that work together might sometimes
come to difficult position - a dead end. A corporation on verge of 
default or a county overwhemled by goverment dept is two of that posisions.
In those cases all of the people of the group surely want to overcome the difficully.
However, they probably lack the motive and the will to take actions. Here is the point
where the importance of a leader becomes apparent. It is the man who will assume the 
responsibillity to instill the motive to the crowd. He will respond to the common demand
of facing the difficulty put putting the group together and creating an escape plan. 
Moreover, there is a far more important situation that creates leaders. Anykind 
of group will surely want to advance and flourish. A company would like to increase 
it's market share and a country would like to increase the power of it's currency. This is 
not to each individual's member ambitions and goals. It is rather because the competitiveness
of the grobalization require constant development. Groups who fail to make any progress will eventually
cease to exist. In this case leaders assume the graetest of all responsibillities: they must 
explore oppotrunities and ways to take advantage of them. Those who do that succesfully ensure
the survival of their group and their personall recognision as leaders. The conclusion is 
that the demand for development and progress is the spark that creates leaders.
Those who oppose to the above ideas might have a good argument in their arsenal. Sometimes 
leaders are not created as a response to demands. There are surely examples of people who rose
to power because they toke advantage of illicit and unethical means. However, those are not 
authentic leaders. Leaders are those who receive approval from the people. Individuals who exploit 
weaknesses to gain power do not gain public acceptance. We cannot considers them leaders.
It is evident the response to public demands is vital in creating and sustaining leadership. 
More demands create the need for more leaders.
