Gate 31: The Gate of Leading
Those with the Gate of Leading can learn to speak very persuasively and influentially when doing so at the right time. Your words can be counted on: They are logical and lead to success. You are a natural leader. People listen when you talk and naturally follow the instructions you provide. You are able to influence people accordingly: You help them achieve their personal and collective goals. How effective you are depends, however, on whether you are free to do things in a timely manner, in keeping with your own guidelines, and without having to rush. You must make it clear to your subordinates that they have to choose to follow your orders of their own free will. Everything you say is meant to convince others and not yourself. What you say is primarily intended for those working with you.
