Good Leaders and their Significance

A leader is someone who has a vision; he has a dream and the passion to pursue it. With his effective analytical skills, decision-making ability and a go-getter attitude, he easily influences others to follow him willingly. The leaders are nurtured through a never ending process of self-study, education, training and experience. He possesses virtues like dedication, integrity, fairness and open mindedness to greet new ideas, thinks out-of- the box and takes initiatives for innovating.

The basis of good leadership can be attributed to honourable character and selfless service to your organisation. People follow good leaders as they have trust in their decisions; they want to be guided by someone who has a clear sense of direction and who can convey a strong vision of the future. They judge a good leader through his ethical ways.

In the corporate scenario, it is quite often asked whether all managers make good leaders. This opens doors to the concept of corporate leadership. Leadership portrays an integral part in the growth and success of any organisation. For managers to lead the organisation, they need to possess leadership skills like planning, organising, accountability, motivating the team, team building, delegating and effective communication. No matter if the firm is small or big, it is vital to have good leaders. For this, leaders have to be created. Yes, leaders can be made, by instilling in them, the qualities of a good leader.

Self-serving leaders are not as effective because their employees only obey and follow them. The skills and knowledge processed by the leader can be influenced by his or her attributes or traits that include beliefs, values, ethics as well as the character. Knowledge and skills contribute directly to the process of leadership, while others contribute certain characteristics to the leader that make the leaders unique and different from others.

Leadership development must initiate at an early age. Introduce children to leadership traits through activities like team games. The children will explore their hidden leadership signs. While at the corporate level, leadership exercises can help identify true leaders in the organisation and sharpen the managerial skills they have.

The future of any organisation - a firm, an institute, a company or even a nation, is secure only in the hands of able leaders who have the abilities to influence the masses with their thoughts and actions. Effective leaders have the skill to listen, think, foresee, understand and act. They dare to dream and live to lead; they understand that success does not depend on their titles, but on the values they maintain and the choices they make on a daily basis. Although, leadership is not achieved through technical expertise, it is based on a relationship with their followers.

Good leaders do not worry about excellence, they simply build it. They do not contemplate the thought whether leaders were born or made, they believe in leading and with their virtue of self-reliance, they accomplish their aims and get them on the pinnacle of perfection.
