What is leadership

Harold S. Geneen said leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and actions. All living creatures tends to have appointed or default leaders. I would like to look into three main important characteristics of a leader in all settings of life. First, a leader must be visionary. H/she must be in a position to plan about the future, have a clear focus where he/she is taking his/her people. Someone once said, “the far you see, the far you will go” and I strongly agree with this. Secondly, A good leader must be courageous. After having a clear plan where they are going as a team, an organization, he/she must be bold enough to match forward despite of all the challenges that may arise. As bold as a lion in pursuing what he/she believes is the best for his/her people. Last but not least, a leader needs to have a positive attitude. As a leader, your attitude determines your altitude. The far you will go or take your people, it all depends with your attitude. With a clear vision, courage to pursue your vision and having a positive attitude every leader will be successful in his/her leadership.
