Four Unique Attributes a Leader Must Have

The most well known leaders are often charismatic and extroverted. But providentially in millions of successful and blossoming businesses around the world;many greats leaders triumph  in driving their companies and causes forward. But they're not all extroverted and companionable.But they all share four peculiar attributes
1. Leaders Make Decisions.
This sounds simple, but many business owners are paralyzed by the decision making process. A poor leader who can't decide between two great opportunities or two very tough calls makes things worse by deciding to do nothing at all.
A good leader understands that He has to be wise but decisive. And while asking for opinions, ideas, and advice from others is important, ultimately a leader has to be prepared to make the call, and willing to take responsibility if things don't go well.
2. Leaders Meet and Greet Their People.
Communication is essential in every leadership position. AS the Ceo of company,you have  to establish a casual relationship with your staffs.
This doesn't mean one-on-one time with every employee, every day. If you're running a multi-million dollar company, you cannot know the name of every single person working there. But you have to be accessible. Find ways to let your employee feel their importance in the company .That's the only way they'll be willing to support you.
3. Leaders Establish a Common Purpose.
Your employees don't just want to help you make more money. That's not a worthy goal. Your company needs a mission statement and a culture that supports that mission. Give your employees something to be proud of by working for you. Give them a “worth vision” to pursue. Make them feel happy about it.
The common purpose has to be worthy of their support, and they have to trust that you will hold to that purpose. Provide updates and news on the progress towards the shared goal, and make sure everyone knows where you and they stand in relation to that goal.
4. Leaders Teach.
The most important thing a good leader does is teach. Beyond the company's mission and long term vision, employees want to grow and probably create opportunity for themselves oneday.Teach what you've learned in a benevolent approach. Share what you've been given. Be a mentor and example and ensure that you're providing an environment that will help your employees flourish and be creative pertaining the company’s progress. That might mean that you're giving them the tools to eventually leave your team. At the same time, stunting their ambition for the company’
It's easy to overlook these aspects of leadership when there are many more concrete and tangible things to focus. But at the end of the day, it's people who keep your company running and it's these people who deserve your attention.
