Political Analysis simply means any systematic attempt to understand, examine, evaluate as well as explain any form of political phenomena like government policies, political stability or instability, corruption, etc. by first breaking them down into conceptual parts in order to make sense of the interplay between its associated variables. Civic leaders need to have an understanding of political analysis for making strategic decisions of creating alliances with political leaders and parties for the development of society.
A political narrative is a way in which storytelling can shape facts and impact understanding of reality. However, a political narrative is not only a theoretical concept, it is also a tool employed by political figures in order to construct the perspectives of people within their environment and alter relationships between social groups and individuals. To run successful campaigns a leader should have appropriate knowledge of Narrative building as it helps in influencing the community at large.
Profile building is a systematic, logical, research-based method to enhance your professional goals. It is a tool through which you can introspect and bring out the capabilities and strengths within you, making yourself aware of your inner self thus becoming more confident to face the outside world. In terms of a civic standpoint, profile building is necessary so that society can have an understanding of the profile of the leader, as to why that particular candidate is ideal an leader.
A campaign is an organized effort that seeks to influence the decision-making progress of a specific group. In democracies, political campaigns often refer to electoral campaigns, by which representatives are chosen. Hence as a civic leader, it is important to influence a large number of people therefore, it is essential to implement successful campaign marketing techniques.
Political capital can be understood as a type of currency used to mobilize voters, achieve policy reform, or accomplish other political goals. It is a metaphor used in political theory to conceptualize the accumulation of resources and power built through relationships, trust, goodwill, and influence between politicians or parties and other stakeholders, such as constituents. A good civic leader should have the potential to build political capital as it is also a method of assuring society that the candidate has the ability to initiate changes and reforms with the help of the gathered political capital.
Personality refers to individual differences in characteristic patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving, therefore, personality development is defined as a process of developing and enhancing one's personality. It helps an individual to gain confidence and high self-esteem as well as it has a positive impact on one's communication skills and the way one sees the world. To be a good leader one should have a well-groomed and balanced personality. When leaders begin to focus on self-improvement, this also helps with contributing to a clear vision for the team.
Soft skills are personal attributes that influence how well you can work or interact with others. As building connections and communications are an essential part of being a civic leader these skills make it easier to form relationships with people, create trust and dependability, and lead teams.
Public speaking has traditionally meant the act of speaking face to face to a live audience. For politicians, public speaking is critical because it helps them spread their messages and learn more about voters' minds. This skill plays a crucial part in the life of a leader because if you're not a good speaker, you won't be able to convey to society what you have to offer, and hence, it's unlikely that people will vote for you.
