8 Traits of a Successful Leader Original post: Sun 11/6/2016 at 11:40 PM

The eight traits the author believes are most important for a leader to have are: building relationships, communicating effectively, listening and questioning skills, team building, understanding of finance, workplace positivity, leadership by example, and the ability to help others grow and develop their skills. Two things that I have always felt were crucial for a good leader that were not listed are effective organization and consistency. I can speak from personal experience when I say that if a leader is not organized and consistent, the whole group falls apart. I once had a boss that would praise one employee for a certain behavior and scold another employee for the same behavior. Working for him was very hectic and none of the employees respected him. It is very hard to have the respect of your followers without organization and consistency.

I like how you put in your thoughts on what the article left out. I agree that if a leader is not organized than everything will fall apart. So for the article to leave out that important information is a bit ridiculous.

I agree with you that being consistent is a key trait of being a good leader. People have to see you doing the right thing all the time not just when you feel like it.
