By | April 30, 2019

[April 30, 2019] There are two types of people in the world, one who has the position of leader and another who is capable of handling the position. Everyone himself is a leader, but it depends on the qualities and characteristics that a leader should have. Being a leader is one of the most difficult and rewarding positions in the world. Not everyone can hold the position properly because of a lack of capabilities. For example, a person who is on the post of manager, and is not able to handle the issues of their employee, that means he has not good leadership qualities.

Of course, we have met the leaders of the big and reputed firms, and they are running their industry with good expertise in their work. Some of them are already expert because of the craze of being a leader, or they might have learned from the previous experiences and we can say that they are well trained in the field.

According to John C. Maxwell

A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way”.

A leader should be capable enough to work by himself, as well as motivate his member to work with concentration and interest. Here in this article, you will find some of the basic leadership qualities and the characteristics of a good leader. You can take ideas from it and learn the great ideas from it for your self-motivation and learning that will help you to become famous and a great leader of the firm.


First and the most necessary quality that a leader should have is honesty. You should know that you are represented as a reflection of the company. Whatever attitude you will show to your employees, they will follow it. If you are not honest, then you cannot expect honesty from the people working under you.

So, have patience, be polite and most important take your decision with honesty.

The entire task on your own. You have to trust the employees who are working with you. Trust their abilities, and working skills because your trust will give them the motivation to work amazingly without doing any mistakes. Employees always wanted to feel appreciated and trust, if you will assign them to work, then they will feel an honor that you have trusted them by assigning them a task.


Who wants the leader with full angry attitude? Of course, no one because it is difficult to run the business by being rude and aggressive with the employees. A leader should have a smiling face so that people under him can discuss the positive and negative points with you. Be an example for your employees so that they can remember you in their future life and try to be like you. A positive attitude is not just about keeping the mood good with the team, but it should provide better results for the team in terms of productivity and innovation. The major points are as under:

    Yes, good communication skills do matter. But they must have the “character” to do good things. Character is what plays the best when folks are put into positions where they must choose a moral way out that is unpopular.

      Character is first, I grant you but Katie has put to us that there are also other important factors like courage and passion. I’m reminded of some recent movies about the Roman Empire that told about how those soldiers were instilled with the traits of courage and passion.

    I like the John C. Maxwell quote. Very famous words from a man who knows his stuff about leadership. Thanks for your guest article.

      Here is one of my favorite John Maxwell quotes. “A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position.” This one is just as relevant in Katie Molina’s article.
