Back then in basic elementary school and even the university we have had a lot of debates about the topic leadership, that Leaders are Made not Born.
This means that beyond the horoscope and natural traits of the human life some skills and characters are needed to be learnt along the way while growing to be a great leader. The path to true leadership is filled with constant upgrade, no wonder a leader is someone who knows the way, shows the way and goes the way.
1 . Persuasion - Due to people's misconception about persuasion it has lead to a lot of bad rap, but still remains one of the most demanded soft skills every leader needs to have.
2 . Consistency - Have written a lot of articles about consistency because I know how it affects humans in achieving their goals, this has a lot to do with being a leader. It is often said that Being consistent builds Trust, Trust in itself is something every persuasive leader must endeavour to build, have you ever meet someone online that you really dont know and your scared to transact and do monetary deals with them cause you really don't Trust them. Through consistency in your words, actions, values and beliefs are made visible to people around you which would mack them Trust you if in a positive direction.
3 . Scarcity - People prefer to go for things they have less, compared to the readily available, For this cause, every leader ought to apply this principle in becoming more persuasivepersuasive, every leader is suppose to draw near to the people in order for them to know him more and know his values.
4 . Reciprocity - This is one of the most special of skills which is to be learnt by intending to be leaders.
It is an unwritten law to most people to give to people irrespective of what is being given to them, It can be in terms of gift, favour, service or even actions displayed. When leaders go out of their way to treat others with service and respect it show's the leader care for his people.
Hope we gained something from this post.
