To me in simple term I have felt that a leader is none other than an ordinary human being who can influence and convince to achieve certain goals. A leader can give the same level of satisfaction that he/she gets in whatever he does. It is untrue to say that he/she is a leader if one can just influence and listen to him. I don’t deny that there are many personal traits and other forms of qualities where a leader had been defined. Different leaders have different attributes where the followers believe in.

My definition of a leader was very vague however, by now I have come to know the greater meaning of a leader once I have listened to many presentations and by reading many materials. When I realize the definition of a leader I felt I have the quality of a leader by now.

Once I play the role of a leader the immediate and one for sure I will do is to listen first. As I have gained many insights from hearing stories I also would prefer and would like to ask my friends and colleagues to share their stories. On my own part I would disseminate the information not directly but in the form of interesting structure like a story where one would motivate and listen carefully to fulfil both our wishes. If one is happy the values, ethics, rules and regulations shall be automatically respected and followed. The whole attitudes towards working only will be changed. Human beings are the basic instrument for happening everything. They think and interact, imagine and plan, shares and decides. Organisation is made of human beings. Therefore, the basis of human understanding must be

In addition to my knowledge of both the project and the task, I brought several character traits that are useful in all situations, and they are that I am hard working, trustworthy, honest, and I love a challenge. All of these traits help me to be an effective follower, and an effective leader, but as I alluded to when discussing my power with regards to my informal leadership throughout the project, those lines are becoming increasingly blurred, so many characteristics that help in one, can help in…
