    As a leader, one must listen...a lot!  You must be willing to work to understand the needs and desires of others. A good leader asks many questions, considers all options, and leads in the right direction.
    these are some key qualities that every good leader should possess, and learn to emphasize.
    Honesty, Ability to Delegate , Communication,Sense of Humor ,Confidence, Commitment ,Positive Attitude ,Creativity ,Intuition ,Ability to Inspire.

    The exceptional leader is always thinking three steps ahead. Working to master his/her own environment with the goal of avoiding problems before they arise.

      Thanks for the advised, but what do you mean by three steps ahead?

    My "take" will be a "wee-bit" different then what Forbes magazine would conclude. The significant qualities that I would consider both important and non-negotiable are being:
    (1) humble and amplifying it is not about me it is for the "good" of us all.
    (2) able to cast a vision, with clarity, simplicity, and directness.
    (3) an effective and strategic team builder.
    (4) an effective and strong relationship builder.
    (5) able to express control and authority as a leader, when required.
    (6) able to immediately and effectively engage in a crisis head-on.
    (7) able to empower others to assist with the trajectory.
