There are many different articles and opinions on what the top 5 qualities make a great leader. In my opinion and experience, here is what I Iook for in a great leader:
- Desire to achieve
Someone that is self driven and not afraid to do whatever it takes
- Creative problem solver
Looks at each issue as a challenge and doesn't take answers such as; we've always done it like this as acceptable.
- Passion in doing whatever it takes for your team
Going the extra mile for their team and willing to not ask of their employees to do something that their not willing to do themselves
- Humility in admitting when you're wrong
Failure will happen and if it doesn't then your not doing your job right. Admit your wrong but never admit defeat because giving up is not an option
- Always being the change you expect from others
Sometimes it's easy to lose sight of the big picture and get sucked into a negative spin but always rise above and be the example and change that you expect from others.
I would love to hear what your top 5 qualities are and why.
