“Leadership is the ability to get extraordinary achievement from ordinary people.” –  Brian Tracy.


Leadership is the action of leading individuals or a group of people having the same goal and objectives. In addition, it can be found around the globe such as in homes, works, churches etc. Thus, being a leader is not an easy job to do, because the leader is guiding a bunch of people not just himself. The failure of the group is also the failure of the leader.

Here are the top 5 qualities that every leader must obtain:

A GOOD LEADER IS A GOOD FOLLOWER
First quality that a leader must obtain is to be a good follower rather than being a leader. The leader must know how to follow the team – means the leader must also listen to the team. Have a certain communication coming from them, and everything will just surely follow.

LEADING WITH ENTHUSIASM AND PASSION
One of the qualities that a leader must have is leading the team with enthusiasm and passion. Show the team that you are really passionate about your responsibility as a leader. Be enthusiastic in accomplishing the objectives and also by achieving it strategically in order to have better results.

BUILDING A TRUST ATMOSPHERE
Gain the trust of their teammates or workers, without it, the group will not function well at all. However, gaining the trust of them is not easy as it requires patience. The best way to do it is to sincerely trust them so they’ll do it the same way as you do. The followers will look to you as a higher ranking officer when you completely gain their trust. That is why you, as a leader, must decisively react and make decisions quick– a way to consistently stable the trust that was given to you from the followers.

RIGHT TEAM – GOOD OUTCOME
Having the right team is a must, a team that will follow you as a leader and will cooperate as well. Furthermore, monitoring the team and giving feedback is a key to have a right team because in such way the leader will know the progress of the team. Thus, do not discourage or belittle the team if they commit mistakes, instead talk and uplift them.

PROCESS OF CONTINUALLY LEARNING
Lastly, learn from success, learn from failure and learn from everything you all have through. Even though it does not produce a good outcome, they deserve a compliment from you for a good job. Learn from experience and by doing it you’ll not repeat the same mistake twice. Never be afraid or ashamed to ask somebody about their opinion because, in the end, it will produce fruitful learning coming from the different ways of media, a platform of learning.
