A leader must be inspiring, they must be able to invite and welcome others. They need to make those around feel like they can get things do and that they know the right way to get these things done. This personality trait is one of the most important for leaders to have. As a leader you should be charming and convincing, someone who others are willing to follow, you can lead if you have no one following you. No matter what cause your leading you must be able to other to not only follow but believe in you and your cause.
For me leadership means more than just being called a leader. It is not about gaining a post or position but also about reaching your people for their solutions. It is about satisfying your people’s need before your own. It is about giving your people the security that their job/work/possession is secure and is in safety until they follow you. It’s about bringing the right decision that is respected by all.
Leadership to me is not a skill that can be learned but is innate. My personal definition of leadership is someone that has the natural ability to be a true leader and doesn’t acquire learning leadership skills. I believe a leader has the influence and ability to inspire others to pursue the leader’s vision to the degree that it becomes a shared effort, a shared vision, and a shared success. Consequently, effective leadership is a trait you are born with. To a certain extent, I consider leaders are born with the desire to lead exceptionally well and the ability to be open to learning from their mistakes and predominantly to learn from other individuals they are trying to lead.
The basic premise for leadership is the process of influencing other people to follow your lead in order to accomplish a goal. It is about the relationship between the leader and the followers. A good leader tries to motivate people to bring about positive changes revealing a common objective without using coercion or manipulation. Leadership is not about control, but permitting interaction and communication between the leader and the individual followers. With empowering others, leaders build a foundation of collaborative thinking and encourage an atmosphere of personal involvement; a leader can strengthen the respect and loyalty of his or her followers.
Leadership is not about having a title, big office, or having followers. Successful leadership is about having the courage to make the right choices, engage others in your vision and empowering followers to pursue choices for the common good. A great leader will leave an impact on their followers that will last a lifetime. My personal leadership philosophy is shaped by considering various factors, of which the first would be knowledge of one’s self. A leader must know and understand their core values such as, authenticity, passion, service, humor, growth and learning.
A leader is not for everyone and to be considering for the role you have to show that you are ready to the best. The role of leader does not limit themselves to what they do and how they do things. If you want to be a good leader, then look at leaders who represent good qualities. As a leader, you want to follow a person who does well and looks out for the good of people. A leader who is ethical and empowering can be very beneficial to an employee.
This process is based on the following common elements. Vision: developing a clearly defined vision is crucial. Once developed, you can inspire your team as you now have shared common goal which will direct their efforts. Motivation: through motivation, a leader harnesses the energy and potential of their team, guiding them to achieve the objectives. Service: an effective leader humbles them self to be of service to their team.

Everyone believes that they have the qualities to be an effective leader and run an organization and its people. Many leaders believe that they hold the right stuff as a leader and for the reason to their level and title. But do people really know?
In a leadership role, I tend to like things to be completed my way, but I have begun to give up some control and be more flexible when working with others. Flexibility is important as a leader because things will never run completely smooth, and it is important for leaders to adapt to changes or shortcomings. I also find that I need to improve on my own self-reflection as a leader.
