Jago (1982) describes that some people think leaders are born, while others believe they are made:
If you have the desire and willpower, you can become an effective leader. Good leaders develop through a never ending process of self-study, education, training, and experience. To inspire your workers into higher levels of teamwork, there are certainthings you must be, know, and, do. These do not come naturally, but are acquired through continual work and study. Good leaders are continually working and studying to improve their leadership skills; they are not resting on their laurels. (para.1)
The boss who achieve their workers to see him as a leader, is making them feel comfortable in their jobs, they find satisfaction in it, and they feelpart of a team (of something important) and to trust their leader and his or her ability to lead successfully. When a person tries to decide whether to trust another person as a leader, what it does is observe their behavior, determines whether a person is righteous and worthy of trust or selfish that only serves itself and uses its authority only to ascend.
Perhaps they all have some truth, but thetruth is that the basis of leadership is a series of attitudes and behaviors that can be learned. Leadership is a process in which a person influences others to meet certain objectives, and directs the organization in a way that makes it more coherent and cohesive. (Invisible Innovation, 2009).
Leaders perform this task using the attributes of leaders. That is, a person could be in command of acompany, but that does not necessarily make a leader. It is not the same to be a leader a leader. The boss may get others to perform their duties in obedience, money, fear of job loss, etc. while the leader gets his followers to do as they wish.
Therefore, to be a good leader you must be an ethical person, concerned for the welfare of the people who make your team interested in doing a good joband not only in making money or promotion. I believe all human beings want to be led by someone who has the following characteristics:
1. People who has a good ethics, trustworthy and righteous.
2. People who transmit the feeling that they know what to do and what is the best way to achieve the objectives.
3. Excellent communication skills.
4. Communication is very important inorder to establishing trust specially in this three areas:
* Helping employees understand the overall business strategy
* Help employees understanding how they contribute to achieving key business objectives
* Share information with employees about how well they are doing so much them or their section as the company in general.
5. Leading by example: Leading by example and hasbeen one of the best ways to lead. Lend a hand when employees needed and as well to ensure the job is done properly.
6. Be passionate: The charisma of a leader can be measured according to the level of passion that exerts itself and its followers. The passion inspires and drives both the other as oneself; I'm not saying that you become the comedian of the moment but believe what you are doingand fight for their objectives.
7. Delegate: shared responsibilities.
8. Respect: I believe that all people without distinction deserve our respect, the right to be heard and understood. To earn the respect of others, you must first respect them. Respect is synonymous of good manners, both in expression as in the acts. It is not acceptable verbal aggression, much less when it takes advantageof hierarchical power to do so through insult, ridicule or contempt.
9. Responsibility: The leader is responsible for everything, good and bad and he or she team should know that you're with them for the better and for the worse. Be responsible for your actions and make others take responsibility for their own, but always focusing on the future. That is, when something is done wrong (which...
