The challenge of leadership is being able to respond to the diversity of today’s society. It is important to be able to interact with followers and develop an alliance in order to achieve goals. A leader must be willing to take risks and explore opportunities for improvement and growth.

A great leader must also posses the following qualities, namely being honest, knows how to delegate, have great communication skills, confident, have commitment, have positive attitude, creative, have great intuition, knows how to inspire others, and approachable (Prive, 2012). As a leader, some of their responsibilities are to empower, mentor, and network. Leaders who empowers others encourages others to rise above, and let them feel strengthened, and in control (Grossman & Valiga, 2009).
