10 Characteristics of Authentic Leader

Great leaders are determined by the qualities or characteristics they possesses. Because, leader are self-made individual. They are result of persistent effort.  Thus, leadership involves much more than just shouting. Effective leadership requires a human focus and reflects a servant and transformation mentality. It is about the nuts and bolts of execution. Leadership is an everyday activity. It is a process that begins but never ends.

I had an opportunity to study several leaders very closely and carefully, either being in their presence or listening to them or reading about them. I believe that leadership is not about a single characteristics. Rather it is a combination of multiple characteristics. Following are the 10 most fundamental characteristics that are common or rather most essential for leadership.

  • Creativity
  • Communication
  • Character
  • Courage
  • Curiosity
  • Conviction
  • Charisma
  • Competence
  • Common Sense
  • Cultivability

I invite you imbibe one or many of these qualities, if your mission is to lead the people or communities and influence their lives for better.
