10 Must Have Qualities of a good Leader
Let me tell you what I think and I believe most people might agree. Its Visibility; visibility as a leader within your organization. Leaders connect with people and they inspire people. So, What are the Qualities of a good leader?
It’s Responsibility, responsibility towards your people and responsibility to meet needs and solve problems.
The above are only a couple of base points where you can narrow down your search for a good leader. But let me assure you that these two points are not enough? While a leader is a very broad word to be limited with numbers/bullets, I tried to extract few major qualities of a leader, from Radhakrishna Pillai’s best selling book “Corporate Chanakya – Success Management the Chanakya way”.
As I mentioned above, there will be enormous number of qualities a leader can have to be a good leader. But we are listing only 10 here and help you decide if any person in your personal or professional life is an example of a good leader.
1. Always seek knowledge
A good leader is always hungry for knowledge as the person who believes to be full of knowledge and does not seek more is a failure. The more you ask the better you position yourself for success. You add value to discussions with appropriate knowledge about trends and you can refine your knowledge furthermore by asking the right questions. On top of that – you need to share your knowledge with others. As Chanakya mentioned, “He who gives up shyness in monetary dealings, in acquiring knowledge, in eating and in business, becomes happy”.
