A question simply arises in my mind that how someone can be a great leader. I thought on this and then I came across various leadership qualities which leaders are having in them. Let me explain first about the leadership qualities. Leader is a word which itself stands for its meaning. That’s why a Leader must be having Listening and Learning capacity, Education, Accountability, Decision making capabilities, Endowment & Empowerment and relationship building skills. A Leader can be influential by powerful influence and achieves effective results by guiding the people to the desired result.
