Oh yes to be a leader then you must be able to trust them and they do stand out from others, they also must be honest, genuine people to be a great leader and listen to others so they can reach whatever they want to be a leader of.

i feel, ppl cannot acquire leadership quality by grooming, some ppl are born with it. leaders are born leaders, ther have this amazing quality of getting listened to and getting followed by. they are trustworthy and can gather mass in no time by their magnetic personality and great oratorship. they are wise and full of undefined knowledge and thoughtfull ness, no wonder they are great mind readers and can get to the core of one self sooner. they are certainly born with a difference, differenc in attitude and order and IQ. however, when ppl have leadership thrust upon an ordinary man, he fails miserably and cultivated leadership fails in the long run. keep sharing....

Leaders lead by virtue of who they are. If we want to be more effective with others, we first need to be more effective with ourselves. There are three core qualities to leadership: authenticity, self-expression, value creation.

I see a lot of people here saying that leaders are born. To a certain extent this may be true, however I am not entirely sure. The great leaders that we have all read about had to get their start somewhere. They also had to get all of their knowledge and values from somewhere as well. Certain characteristics such as charisma or respect may come naturally to you, but that will not make you a leader. This is why I say leaders are not born, they are made. They tend to seperate themselves from others with their knowledge and their values as well as other leadership qualities. Without proper grooming from others who have been in a position of leadership they will not succeed as leaders themselves. As a leader you need to learn how to deal with people at their very best and at their very worst. The books we all read and the stories we all hear are about leaders at their very best when their people are at their very best. You never hear about the tough times. This is where true leaders shine. It can take many years to groom a leader. Why do you think that certain political offices have a minimum age requirement? This is because they want to make sure that the leaders that we are electing are fully qualified to lead. It is a long process, and only people that have been inside of it as leaders or as people who are being groomed for leadership can really know for sure.

Leadership: if you try to earn it, you cannot unless you have some special quality such as: sympathetic and cooperative mind, excellent behaviour, brave manner, good orator, charity minded, ablity to focus towards peoples problem and false or true assurance to solve it with your life. Also need some cash money first to become a leader. Also there have some devine bless on leaders. I am leader of a community and I face some hardship and painful situation due to leadership role in my non-profit.

It's actually kind of scary how some people have been able to become powerful leaders thru pain and suffering. I much prefer the leaders whi have acquired their positions from being confident, assertive and driven.

Leaders are actually born and they have a certain something about them, some will call it charisma, that makes them stand out from a very young age. It is not really something that a person can learn, although of course as they mature they will often learn how to enhance their natural leadership talents. A leader must have the trust, or else nobody will follow them. By the trust I mean that they should honour their word, not make promises that they cannot keep and also lookk after their followers. To do anything else, is abuse of power. A leader doesn't necessarily have to think differently to other people, but they must have the ability to put the thoughts that they do have into words that everyone can understand.

I agree with you on that. If people don't trust you, they will never follow you all the way.
