Motivation can be defined as the desire by an individual to act in service of a specific goal. For this assignment, I have chosen the movie “Black Panther” as a motivation for better leadership. I have chosen this movie as a tribute to the fallen hero “Chadwick Boseman” and who is the main motivation for many of us who love action movies. Leadership is an important trait as it helps guide the subjects in what is right and keep them away from that which can harm them. The movie is based on kingship challenges in which three people challenge a king’s position in the Wakanda Kingdom. One of them is T’Challa, the son of the late T’Chaka, who is first challenged by the leader of the neighboring Jabari Tribe, M’Baku, and then challenged Killmonger, the son of King T’Chaka’s late undercover brother, N’Jobu. Wakanda is a wealthy nation due to its major resource, vibranium- a magic metal capable of endless uses, which makes the Wakandans invisible, wealthy, and by choice, isolationists.
One of the major leadership motivations from the movie depicted by T’Challa is that a true leader serves his people unequivocally. To him, the people do not exist for his manipulative pleasure and seeks counsel from the people he represents. Furthermore, a true leader mingles with his people at ease. The people are the reminders of the responsibility that rests on his shoulders to both protect them and guide them to the right path. A true leader is forgiving, and this is depicted when he forgives W’Kabi for his betrayals and reconciling with M’Baku and Killmonger to build a strong Wakanda nation.
