At present, it takes a leader is not limited to leaders who have the intellectual capacity only. It all started from a series of studies that show the people who are intellectually smart is not often the people who succeed in work or personal life success. With the current of work force faster change, more open and demanding high cooperation, need a leader who is flexible and able to combine IQ and EQ. More expected role as a leader who is able to cope with change as the dynamics of the environment. This thing is needed to consider, because the effectiveness of a leader is measured by the performance and growth of the organization that he/she leads as well as the satisfaction of the followers of the leader. Type of the leadership that is appropriate for this case is transformational leadership.
Leadership’s intelligent (IQ and EQ) can be summarized in three important aspects, that are: character change, clear vision and high competence. Those aspects are based on an attitude of discipline to continue to grow and learn either internally or in conjunction with others. Leadership is a decision and more a result of the change in character or internal transformation in a person. Leadership is not position or title, but a birth of a long process of change in a person. Associated with the leadership in the environmental cases, transformational leadership includes three components: charisma, intellectual stimulation, and individualized attention. And those components are showed at the G20 meeting in Pittsburgh a while ago. Our President Yudhoyono shows the climate leadership by issuing Indonesia’s commitment to reduce emissions 26% by 2020 will be 41% with international support. Respond of that thing, currently the people, environmentalists, environmental organizations and others stake holder concerned to take action to encourage this commitment into concrete action to immediately stop the deforestation/forest degradation. Rapid climate change will affect the whole life, now it all depends on policy makers supported by the leadership at the top to ensure young generations to have a future free of dangerous climate change.
