In my opinion, leader certainly needs some qualities which is outstanding from the other persons.
The first, a leader needs confidence. Part of your job as a leader is to put out fires and maintain the team morale. Keep up your confidence level, and assure everyone that setbacks are natural and the important thing is to focus on the larger goal. As the leader, by staying calm and confident, you will help keep the team feeling the same. The key objective is to keep everyone working and moving ahead. Because the future of your brand is worry some and things aren’t going according to plan. This is true with any business, large or small, and the most important thing is not to panic.
The second, a good leader needs inspiration. Creating a business often involves a bit of forecasting. Especially in the beginning stages of a startup, inspiring your team to see the vision of the successes to come is vital. Make your team feel invested in the accomplishments of the company. Whether everyone owns a piece of equity, or you operate on a bonus system, generating enthusiasm for the hard work you are all putting in is so important. Acknowledge the work that everyone has dedicated and commend the team on each of their efforts. It is your job to keep spirits up, and that begins with an appreciation for the hard work.
The third, a leader needs passion. You must love what you do. In order to be truly successful at something, you must obsess over it and let it consume you. No matter how successful your business might become, you are never satisfied and constantly push to do something bigger, better and greater. You lead by example not because you feel like it’s what you should do, but because it is your way of life.
Besides, a leader also needs communication. Being able to clearly and succinctly describe what you want done is extremely important. If you can’t relate your vision to your team, you won’t all be working towards the same goal.
Training new members and creating a productive work environment all depend on healthy lines of communication. Whether that stems from an open door policy to your office, or making it a point to talk to your staff on a daily basis, making yourself available to discuss interoffice issues is vital. Your team will learn to trust and depend on you, and will be less hesitant to work harder.
Finally, to become a good leader, you are really an open-mindedness person. The truth is, leaders need to keep an open mind while being flexible, and adjust if necessary. When in the startup phase of a company, planning is highly overrated and goals are not static. Your commitment should be to invest, develop and maintain great relationships.
I like the your idea.
For me, the most important being a leader is you know how to manage everything and being balance. Balance like not being over confidence and being too proud to one's self. Be an open-minded to every situations. Of course, the members are relying to the leader. Don't let your position ruin everything and never ever be boastful and make your head bigger. Stay humble. People will listen and follow your leadership skill.
Well, that's what I've learned being a class leader.
