What makes a great leader?

Coming up with a great idea and bringing together a team to make that concept a reality is the first step in building a successful business. Finding a great person to oversee the implementation of this idea is what separates the dreamers from great leaders. While the actions of a leader may be scrutinized when something go wrong, it is their leadership qualities that make them stand out even at the worst of times.

So, if you aspire to be a leader and wondering how to go about it, consider the following unique attributes.

Personal qualities

Great leaders exhibit certain qualities that make them successful. They walk the talk and the needs of the people come first on their priority list. You must show honesty, trust, compassion, and consistency. The best leaders are those that are quick to make decisions and can delegate responsibilities to their team to achieve higher goals.


If you are the captain of the ship, it’s important to steer in the right direction and have a team that is enthusiastic about the journey. Similarly, great leaders have a positive and dynamic work culture. They build culture and values in an organization and ensure that every employee enjoys being part of it. It requires the right team, the right decisions, and courage to solve any problem in an organisation.

Team management

It doesn’t matter whether a leader has a small workforce or manages a large team of employees, they must be good at team management. Great leaders should value their team by providing incentives, opinion, mentoring and training to enable them to grow. They are open to creativity and innovation. Similarly, they set certain expectations of their team, and manage them until they achieve these goals.
