1. Ability to see the big picture- I've known leaders who got so wrapped up in the here and now that they lost sight of the big picture and made bad choices.
2. Ability to inspire others around them- In order to inspire, a leader has to earn the trust of those that they lead, understand their audience's needs, desires, and motivators, and the leader should be looking out for the good of the whole and not a select group.
3. Ability to empathize- Leaders should be able to put themselves in another situation in order to be able to understand those that they lead.
