What makes a great Leader

This is one of the many important questions i had: What makes a great leader? Is it his high level of experience or that he is always available for everyone?

There is a lot that makes a great leader and the below words might not even be in the right order but all of them together makes you already a great leader.

1. Know your Team!

“Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of every individual to effectively manage the outcome of a team is imperative for success. Leaders have a great vision and use the resources at hand to solve problems. They take risks and make hard decisions, knowing they could sometimes be wrong. Those are the most important qualities of a real leader that work similarly in our professional and personal lives.”

2. Articulate a clear Vision

“A great leader posses a clear vision, is courageous, has integrity, honesty, humility and clear focus. He or she is a strategic planner and believes in teamwork. Great leaders help people reach their goals, are not afraid to hire people that might be better than them and take pride in the accomplishments of those they help along the way.”

3. Have faith in their believs

“It’s a mix of a lot of things, but first and foremost it’s about having faith in your beliefs. You can’t expect others to consider you a leader unless you have solid faith in your ideas. And once it’s there, you build on it by being a good communicator, listening to others, setting examples and by putting your best foot forward and not giving up. Leadership is all about being passionate about what you do, and having confidence in yourself and your followers whom you have to motivate and inspire.”

Matei Gavril, CEO at PrMediaOnline

4. Push people to be their best

“Great leaders have clarity of purpose and are great at articulating their beliefs. I aspire to be the kind of leader that pushes people to be the very best they can be but still make people feel safe because it starts with the heart.”

Amas Tenumah, CEO BetterXperience

5. Focus on helping the Team

“Someone who leads by positive direction and builds agreement among its group members towards the accomplishment of a coordinated goal. Ultimately, leadership is not about who is in charge. It’s about making sure your team stays focused on the goals, keeping them motivated and helping them be the best they can be to achieve those goals. This is especially true when the risks are high and the consequences matter.”

Kara Kelly, Executive Director of CompleteContents.com

6. Train your Team so they can always follow you

One of my main Challenges in Day to Day business is that I train and explain to my people why I want to have certain things to be done a certain way. My biggest goal for the day is to be sure that if I will not be there tomorrow anyone of my Team can take over and lead my company to success.
