  1. Listening: This is the most important skill, which frankly, many leaders do not possess. Steven Covey advised that “Seek first to understand, before seeking to be understook”. Listening ensures that one captures the essence of what the speaker has to say — including what they are not saying.
  2. Vision: Great leaders have an unflagging view of what the future looks like and agitate for it. Having them speak of it inspires people to work towards that goal
  3. Endurance: Great leadership encounters great obstacles, and great leaders have the stamina to keep on surmouting each roadblock, for large periods of time without any successful achievements, and yet remain certain that their position is the right one.
  4. Integrity: Doing the right thing despite of its unpopularity is a huge personal sacrifice and great leaders routinely take the hard road — such as avoiding manipulation, treating people as agents of their destiny, separating personal dislikes from professional responsibilities.
  5. Respect: Great leaders are respected for who they are as individuals, rather than what position or authority they have.

All of the above are Things That Makes A Good Leader. Think about them and see what you can do in order to become a better leader.
