1. Desire - One must have a strong desire to see others succeed. A leader must give and serve to his followers in order to gain success and the right to be known as a leader.
2. Faith - As the great Napoleon Hill states in his masterpiece "Think and Grow Rich", "FAITH is the starting point of all accumulation of riches!" Just as we have faith in religion, family, and friends, a true leader will have faith in their team of followers and believe in each and every one of them without discrimination.
3.Commitment - A strong and un-deniable commitment to your team of followers is crucial. Individuals feel that sense of dedication and commitment to seeing them succeed from the one specific leader that they are looking to for success and if for some odd reason that confidence and feeling of security goes missing, so will the individual and, make no mistake about it, several others.
4.Honesty - Honesty and Integrity go hand-in-hand in showing excellent leadership qualities. Dishonesty in your leadership will be noticed, if not immediately, but in due time and can destroy all efforts made to succeed. So let's keep it simple, remain at all times honest with your following team, and you will always be their leader.
5.Uniqueness - This is a great quality to have. As people, not one person is the same and we are already unique amongst others. Being unique in leadership maintains the focus on you as a leader and you will always maintain the interest of your team members. There's nothing worse than becoming a boring leader. It's a sure way to not be considered a leader at all.
Keep in mind that not everyone has the same opinion as I do in regards to what the best leadership qualities are, but in the experience that I have had in my field and industry, these are above all the ones that I noticed the most. You will probably have your own favorite 5 or even 10 qualities of leadership. Remember, you must show those qualities in order for you to become successful. "Give and you shall receive." I wish you all the best in life and business, and if I've have shown those qualities to you here please feel free to leave your comments. I always love to hear from my readers.
A leader needs to be positive so that he/she can set the tone for the environment. An optimistic attitude from a leader can carry over to others. Confidence is contagious; so is the lack of it. Employees mirror the tone that leaders set. So if leaders are positive, optimistic and confident, the employees will mirror it.
A leader also needs to be responsible because when an employee makes a mistake, it is the leader's responsibility to help him or her improve. Employees will never respect a leader who deflects criticism toward the team. Successful leaders think of themselves as "we," not "I." It is a leader's responsibility to ensure that everyone shares in the team's success.
A leader also has to be consistent as flip-flopping between styles confuses employees. Leaders should stick with one style of leadership. Those who look to leaders for leadership must know what to expect on a daily basis. Also, leaders should make decisions consistently. It is important not to bring their personal feelings to the workplace. When dealing with employees, they should stay focused on the situation or issue, not on the person. Leaders connect with some workers better than others. Leaders should try not to let relationships taint their response.
A leader should also know how to communicate well. Good leaders are good communicators. They clearly convey their message in a way that connects with the listener. Good leaders understand that his teammates tailor his/her message to the needs of each worker. If someone is analytical, a leader should construct his/her message focusing on facts and data. If someone is more relational, he/she should construct the message in a way that conveys emotion and focuses on how the change impacts people.
A leader should also be a listener. The most important characteristic of a leader is being a good listener. A leader should focus on the needs of his/her employees. Often people feel afraid of, or intimidated by, management. A leader should make sure he shows people he are willing to listen to what they have to say, that they are important and worthy of his/her time.
A leader should also be fun. A successful leader has fun in the process. Lightness can complement the seriousness of the job. A fun environment doesn't indicate a lack of professionalism. In fact, a fun environment contributes to the team's results and retention.
