What do you think it takes to be a good leader? What qualities should a leader possess?
Leadership is more than a title. It is more than just being in charge. Leadership is honesty, learning, listening, and most importantly application. Leadership means going the extra mile or two, doing the right thing no matter who’s looking, staying encouraged and encouraging others even when times are hard and you have every reason to quit. <span style="color: windowtext;">Leadership</span> doesn’t mean you’re rich, well known, liked, or respected but it does mean you are a passionate, caring, and authentic. Leadership means you care about something so much that you are willing to risk everything you have for this belief or idea. Leadership is doing whatever you can in your power to make things better for those around you.
You don’t have to be sure of every single action but you can’t fear the future or change because in order to accomplish your goal change is often necessary. A bold attitude is a definite must. Leaders will always come against someone or something that opposes what they believe, boldness will give them the strength to keep going even when the people they lead have start to disappear or they have grown weak. At the first that you are ready to give up they will abandon ship as the leader it must be a part of your character to be bold and keep going no matter how hard things may seem. These characteristics tie in with the trait of inspiration. When others see how bold you are, they will realize that just maybe if you’re willing to put this much on the line, face the probability of being ridiculed and disowned by your people and the rest of the society just maybe you stand for something that is right and maybe they should too.
These characteristics are all great but to have the ability to truly lead you need conviction. Conviction to keep going you going when your boldness has eliminated your friends, when your yourself needs inspiration, when you don’t want to be genuine, when you want to give up and take the easy way out. Conviction is that thing that keeps us going, it helps us stay true to our task no matter where you go or what you do. All the above traits are what a leader most possess to become a true leader.
