Signs That You’re a Quality Leader

Posted on November 8, 2012


We all have different personality types.  Some of us have strong personalities, maybe very vocal, while others are more laid back and don’t speak up as often as they’d like.  Regardless of either extreme, each personality type can be natural leaders.  Are you?  Here are a few characteristics that determine quality leadership skills.


There is a difference in being confident and full of yourself.  Confident people are typically critical thinkers who have done their homework to ensure they are correct.  They are sure of themselves and make valid points.  Others look up to these types of people because they set an example.

Play Fair

This sort of ties in to having confidence, but these people play by the rules and do no make exceptions for the wrong reasons.  They treat individuals how they should be treated and how they expect to be treated.  Think of someone you know who follows the rules and treats people fairly.  What do you think of them?  Most see these people as strong, confident, and might even consider them a leader!

Recognize Others for Hard Work

Leaders don’t take all of the credit for getting things done.  These folks are willing to recognize others for doing a good job, making the other people feel special and included in their success.  Leaders want to share their visions with others, making them aware of expectations, goals, and how to get to the next level.

Although there are many qualities that make up a good leader, these are just a few of the obvious traits that most leaders possess.  What do you see in a leader?  Do you consider yourself to be a leader?
