Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! - Jeanette V. Quizon --oo0oo--

Ac­cord­ing to Wikipedia, lead­er­ship is both a re­search area and a prac­ti­cal skill en­com­pass­ing the abil­ity of an in­di­vid­ual or or­ga­ni­za­tion to "lead" or guide other in­di­vid­u­als, teams, or en­tire or­ga­ni­za­tions.

What makes up a GOOD LEADER?

A leader is a per­son who con­vinces other peo­ple to fol­low, some­one who in­spires and puts con­fi­dence in other peo­ple and moves them to act. Stud­ies of lead­er­ship have pro­duced the­o­ries in­volv­ing traits, sit­u­a­tional in­ter­ac­tion, func­tion, be­hav­ior, power, vi­sion and val­ues, charisma, and in­tel­li­gence, among oth­ers.

It means that any­one can be a good leader, only if that cho­sen per­son is more likely ex­pe­ri­enced with be­ing trained be­fore, be­came a sub­or­di­nate who knows how to fol­low, some­one who can deal with the mean­est per­son in group, has a pos­i­tive outlook in life and some­one whom you can de­pend on with re­gards to work is­sues.

A good leader is some­one who mo­ti­vates his peo­ple in a pos­i­tive way, for this will in­spire them to do bet­ter in their as­signed task.

Lastly a good leader boosts his/her sub­or­di­nates to im­prove them­selves, such as; let them at­tend train­ings, sem­i­nars or take a post grad­u­ate course, that means he/ she is pre­par­ing oth­ers to LEAD, the way he/she does.
