These are just some of the qualities that make a great leader during hard times. If you possess these qualities, you are well on your way to becoming a loved leader. It is unfathomable to think that for centuries, it has been believed that great leaders were born, not made. But this is simply not true. Anyone can become a great leader with the right mindset and skillset. What separates great leaders from the rest is their ability to motivate and inspire others. They know how to get the best out of their team and make everyone feel like they are a part of something bigger. Great leaders also have a vision for the future and are able to articulate it in a way that gets others excited about it.
Lastly, Great leaders do not seek power for its own sake. They do not seek to control others or to manipulate them for their own benefit. Instead, they seek to empower those around them so that they can reach their full potential. Great leaders also do not shy away from difficult conversations.
They understand that conflict is a natural part of life and they are not afraid to address it head-on. They know that by engaging in honest dialogue, they can find common ground and resolve differences. In closing, great leaders are not afraid to show vulnerability.
