A good leader requires one thing, and one thing only. He requires “followers”. Without followers, no one can be a leader. How to get people to follow you? Those people need to “trust” you. They need to know that, by following you, you are taking them somewhere better than where they are now.
In essence, a good leader possesses 2 simple things:
- He does things for other’s best interest, not his.
- He takes accountability of the situation because he wants to make a difference.
