What makes a great leader?

The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born – that there is a genetic factor to leadership. This myth asserts that people simply either have certain charismatic qualities or not. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.
– Warren G. Bennis

What makes a great leader?

I have always been intrigued with this question. For someone who has been a Manager for quite some time now, there were times where I question my capabilities and ask, am I a good leader?

Leadership is not just a noun. It’s not just  a privilege given to someone who is in a position to manage his subordinates but rather it is a trait driven by passion, by love and by a goal to improve… to influence.
