To me, a good leader is one who strives to lead by example. They should be willing to lend a hand in getting the work done, not just stand around watching everyone else work and complain that things aren't getting done fast enough. If they want people to work hard, they should be willing to work hard.
The #1 skill of an excellent leader is communication, or inter-personal skills. A good leader is a problem solver, and to do that he has know how to talk to people in a manner that is appropriate and which suggests respect for their level of expertise or knowledge in any given area. That is how a good leader gets results and inspires people to work harder and more efficiently.
#2 A good leader is not afraid to hire people who he deems smarter than himself. His goal is to build teams who will work together to get the job done.
#3 A good leader has a knack for knowing when to make changes and when to stay the course (in projects or management styles). He also understands the value of a compliment for a job well done. In addition, he rewards good work that consistently produces excellent results for the company--through bonuses, promotions, etc.
probably the most important quality a leader can have is empathy. i say this because the best leader is one who understands those they lead, and when you feel the pain around you, you are not so apt to cause more. sometimes pain is needful, but when it is not, then do not cause it. a leader with empathy will do their best to lead right and not be self serving. they will truly care for the people they serve. a true leader will not be slowed down by ego. they should also have a firm grasp on strategy. communication skills are a must as well.
