Expert from Germany, Sven Anger conducted a workshop on the topic «The Ecology of Smart Leadership». During his session, he pointed out six qualitiesof a good leader.  Want to be a laudable leader? Check them out.

  • Vision: having a sense of purpose and a clear understanding of Your objectives.
  • Self-awareness: gaining a better understanding through introspective and the feedback of others.
  • Understanding your “why”: a lot of people tend to be very reluctant when responding to the question “ why are they doing what they do.”

Many of them would confuse the “what” where they describe what they do with the “why” where they actually define the reason that makes them “do what they do” and how do they sustain that motif during the course of Time.“ It takes courage to follow through.

  • Courage: having the courage to take risks to achieve your purpose.
  • Willingness to correct wrong decisions: Being able not only to recognize the wrong decisions but also to correct them means having the ability to innovate.
  • Being more “solution oriented” rather than “problem oriented.”
