Who do you think is an efficient leader? You all will have different definitions of a good leader, but there are certain qualities which should be common among all the leaders in the world. Few of them are intelligence, adaptability, ambitiousness, and meticulousness. However, there are various other virtues which you should incorporate within yourself in order to become a fine leader!
So, how do you think you can embrace these qualities and then become a resourceful leader? In order to be a leader, it is not necessary to be the Manager or CEO of a company. Anyone can be a leader if he/she has the qualities within. Here I present a few qualities which I think all the leaders should inherit among themselves:
Being a leader means being creative. You should never be out of ideas if you want to be called or treated as a leader. Intellectual motivation is one of the most important aspects of a leader. As a successful leader, you should ready to accept challenges as well as should always be ready to face them. You should make your followers depend upon your for ideas.
The best part of being confident is that nobody even dares to ask questions. No matter whether you are going the right path or the wrong, as long as you are confident, your followers will not doubt. We all assume things and hence, when you will show your confidence in front of your followers, they will assume that you know everything.
Be kind but firm
Be firm with your decisions but do not be bossy. Being kind is another virtue which a leader should have. Speak kindly, politely and put your decision and views in front of others so that they do not find it difficult to accept what you are trying to put forward.
Be a role model for all
Being someone’s role model isn’t easy and therefore one needs to make efforts in order to become important in front of others. Learn to speak up for yourself, for others and do not keep mum. Be courageous and charismatic and make others look up to you with respect.
It is one of the most important aspects of a leader. He/she should motivate others as well as should himself be motivated enough to be able to carry forward the work in a better manner. Be passionate about your goals and use your ideas to fetch your dreams. Also, try to keep your followers inspired and motivated throughout their working schedule.
For me, the above mentioned qualities are indeed very much important for an efficient leader to inherit, but one should never think that a person can take over these virtues since birth. There are many ways to develop leadership skills and one of them is getting it through education. So, why not try hands in a similar venture?
Getting a degree like this will help one to gain much more knowledge about the whole genre of leadership. It will equip the learner with skills of becoming an efficient leader and will let him be the same forever in life!

Our book:The Caring Professor: A Guide to Effective, Rewarding, and Rigorous Teaching, was written with feedback from many educators and students, which was our plan all along. We began by outlining our thoughts on a series of topics, then we recorded them to share with the world. From the feedback we received, we were informed about the needs of the student caring community. We need your feedback so we may continue to fulfill our mission statement and help students, the world over.
