Having a good leader is just like finding a precious gem in a topsy-turvy world of employment. He has the ability to manage the workers efficiently. A pleasant relationship between the boss and the employees is essential to augment career growth within the workplace. The following are the outstanding characteristics of a good leader:

Well-disciplined – a good leader must be dedicated and prompt especially during meetings, seminars, workshops, and conferences. He must be able to discern personal from official matters when implementing rules and making decisions for the company.

Appreciative – a good boss must appreciate the commendable efforts done by the workers within the company. He must not discourage nor disappoint his employee to do better jobs for personal growth and for the company as a whole. It was William James who said, “The deepest principle of human nature is the craving to be appreciated.”  Recognition of a worker’s achievement is essential to boost his morale as sunshine is to flowers.

Open-minded – a good leader must be open to suggestions and must encourage his employee to present their ideas and useful suggestions. Let them soar like eagles by giving them more opportunities for career growth and enhancement of their skills. Let us be reminded that the employees are not mere workers but they’re assets for the company if given a chance. They’re the people behind the success of every institution.

Truthful – a good superior must possess integrity and can’t be silenced by affluence, power and prestige. He is credible in judgement and remained morally upright in spite of the ambiguity and any political manuevering within the workplace.

A good follower – a good leader must also be a good follower of the rules and regulations imposed in the company. A good superior must be a positive role model to everyone within the workplace.
