Good leaders also instill confidence in others and encourages others to set up the lead.  Stress Management: During times of stress, good leaders will remain calm and stay on track while keeping emotions at bay. Others look to their leader for strength in time of stress.  Communication Skill: Good leadership requires good communication skills.

  • How to become a leader: 7 Instruction Step 1: Learn decision making skills Great leaders have the ability and courage to make decisions. Some people hold back from making unpopular decisions. In addition, other people fear making a wrong decision. However, a good leader realizes that he or she will sometimes make a wrong decision. Rather than dwell on a wrong choice, they learn from their mistakes and move forward.
  • Step 2: Motivate  Persons who lead a team or organization can usually motivate or up build others. In order to inspire someone else, leaders recognize the main objective or common goal, and wholeheartedly believe in a vision. In turn, they can motivate their team to action.
  • Step 3: Learn to listen  A good leader will come up with useful ideas. However, a great leader will also listen to his or her team and take their ideas and thoughts into consideration.
  • Step 4: Recognize personal short comings  Great leaders make mistakes. Rather than feel that your feelings and opinions are always right, take a candid look at your behaviour and traits. Identify your faults and accept constructive criticism.
  • Step 5: Improve oral communication skills  Effective leaders can express their thoughts and visions in a clear and understandable manner. Take public speaking courses, practice speaking aloud, slow down and think before you speak.
  • Step 6: Be a risk taker  There are risk associated with every decision. Some people avoid risky situations and always take the safe road. However, a great leader knows that certain risks are worth taking.
  • Step 7: Be Trustworthy  We want leaders who are honourable, dependable and responsible. To be a good leader, it is important to possess these traits. Others will recognize these fine qualities, and be inclined to respect your leadership role and achieve the overall goal.
