While giving a speech to students attending National Student Leadership Conference in Chicago, Vice President Mike Pence gave advice to them on how to be a leader in a similar fashion to President Trump.
He told those in attendance in order to act like a leader, humility is important.
“The first is humility. It’s often in too scarce a supply in our society today. I mean, the ability to consider others as more important than yourself. For a leader…The truth is, our President, he leads by asking questions and he listens. And I believe that reflects the kind of humility that will enhance your ability to be a leader,” Pence said.

Another way to be a leader, according to Pence, is to “recognize and respect” those in authority:
Honor them. Learn from them. Follow their example. Give them the honor that they are due. Never that they ask for it, but there’s nothing more meaningful when you enter an organization in the years ahead, and you take a time to demonstrate respect for those who have been placed in authority over you; to listen to them and to defer to them, even while you offer them the broadest range of your counsel and your talents.
The last piece of advice Pence gave was to establish good self-control: “I mean, whether it’s in our physical lives, whether it’s in our organization each and every day, to practice discipline and to practice self-control is to become the kind of woman and man that people will respect and people will follow.”
