Likeable...yep, that's right, a leader must be likeable. If people don't want to be around you, how are you going to convince them to follow you on any endeavor? However, being likeable cannot get in the way of being able to deal with difficulties amongst your team, if this occurs, you'll lose all legitimacy as a leader...Find your balance, that will make you more...

E

Effective...an exceptional leader finds methods to be effective regardless of his/her audience and generally leads by example, and is someone others try to emulate. It starts with having the right...

A

Attitude...which, cannot be overly assertive, or chances are your team will find you overbearing and pushy. Leaders strive to maintain a positive attitude; it's what allows them to stay...

D

Driven...with a self-motivated, activator type personality who is still a team player, yet pushes to find solutions and ways towards implementation of his or her initiative, all for the betterment of the whole, not for self-gratification.

So go..LEAD..what's stopping YOU!
