Bryan Stevenson wrote a book called Just Mercy, which is about the failures in the criminal justice system. He tells the stories of victims of horrible injustices. He uses pathos as a narrative technique in order to persuade readers to feel empathetic towards the people about whom he wrote in his book. Stevenson uses pathos to have the reader feel a variety of emotions, specifically sympathy, anger, and hope because he knows that those emotions have more influence on the readers.
A leader can be defined as a person who influences a group of people, organization, etc. in to achieving a set out or common goal. The aim of this paper is to identify the different approaches to leadership, but there is no single definition of leadership, as it can mean many different things to many people depending of their profession, environment and leadership style (Mielach, 2012).
Pathos is emotional appeal that influences what we think. According to everything’s an argument there are four main ways that Pathos is used. They are using emotions to build bridges, using emotions to sustain an argument, using humor, and using argument based on emotion. To build a bridge, the speaker makes the audience feel empathy for the situation. The speaker appeals to her or his own experience to gain sympathy early that way the audience will be more inclined to listen later. When utilizing emotion to strengthen an argument, it makes the claim stronger, because it can energize the situation. Humor can be a great tactic to lighten the mood, but a jokester must be careful because the joke may be thought of as ridicule. Arguments based on emotion are to strike a particular emotion, so that the audience will feel more
Hence, Jon Krakauer’s use of pathos, logos, and ethos facilitates his argument. Whether a person responds most to emotion, logic, or credibility, each is accounted for. The author’s purpose of persuading others to understand Chris’s situation is realized through the inclusion of different

During an interview, Covey was asked what he believed effective leadership looked like. Covey’s response was, “My definition of leadership is communicating to people their worth and potential so clearly that they are inspired to see it in themselves.” (Covey, The Leader Formula: The 4 Things That Make A Good Leader, 2007). Communication, inspiring, motivating, being authentic, and honesty are all qualities of an effective leader that would help “inspire” followers to reach for the stars and achieve greatness in Covey’s
It would be understandable to say that the qualities of a leader can alter both the economy and culture of a country in today’s societies and many people it seems favor leaders that appeal to proprietary ways. Effective leaders have been followed up and down history by economists, landlords, common people, and so forth. It seems that throughout early and present history, philosophers such as George S. Patton, Plato, and Norm Smallwood pointed out particular qualities of an effective leader-especially collaborative leaders- as being progressive and successful with undeniable charisma, one can clearly assemble with great leadership in Smallwood's document and fathomable integrity in the works of Patton and Plato, the great pressures that collaborative
Great leaders are often thought of as history’s heroes and corporate commanders, but they can be seen in all areas of life. Without them, our society would fall to shambles for “the problems that require leadership are those that the experts cannot solve” (Manthey, 2004). I used to feel that leaders and managers were the same. However, I have learned that you can be a leader without being a manager, and vice versa. Acceptable leaders are a dime a dozen, but exceptional leaders are few and far between. Every individual at some period during his or her life will come across both ineffective and exceptional leaders, as well as a vast range between the two; the best of them drive others to become great in their own right.

Pathos is an emotional appeal in which the advertisers hope that the consumers will allow their claim. Say for instance most people will notice a puppy behind what looks like to be a rusty cage. Seeing a cage like that, makes some wonder how bad the conditions are that the puppy is living in. then there is the puppy who looks very solemn, sad, and miserable. It makes one think how can people do this, why would they do this. This is an animal that should not have to live their life this way; it can really tug at some heartstrings, and cause many emotions like sad, anger, and even happy. For instance something like this makes most people think wow how can someone do th...
The claim of leadership comes with a heavy responsibility. It should be understood that the leader becomes the symbolic scapegoat for the frustrations and failures of its purported followers. Significantly, when the leader relies on the logic of unprincipled and pragmatic interest, the lesson taught to others is not a particularly moral one.
Pathos is achieved as a writer appeals to the heart or emotions of the reader.

She used this example to help the readers become interested in the little girl's excitement.
