Being an effective leader involves the ability to make change happen in any situation or organization. Knowing how and when you assert yourself as a leader, it can be difficult. An assertive leader is a direct, honest, and use appropriate expression of feelings and opinions. A non-assertive leader doesn’t stand up for themselves in an ineffectual way when they are being violated. Charismatic leaders are passionate, enthusiastic, and excited about their work and their group members.

Personality as well as intelligence tells people a lot about an individual. Certain characteristics of one’s personality such as impression and reputation in a social environment may or may not be a good way to gain acknowledgement. In becoming a leader, work ethics must be strong, precise, and others must be able to feel one’s presence. The three abilities that successful leaders have are; the ability to get along with others and build teams, the ability to make sound and timely decisions and the ability to get things done. The mass amounts of leaders only possess one or two of these abilities and a smaller percentage having all three.
