Being a leader takes patience, hard work, teamwork, confidence, and responsibility.
Staying encouraged while encouraging others along the way. In order to lead you must

developed your own route of leading. What makes a leader? The qualities in which you
look up to one day possess. To soon become your own leader among others to whom
they will soon look up to you. “The three skills approach includes technical, human

Theirs a team behind you along with whom you answer to in some cases to show
reasons you are in the position you are in now. An example of how we can assess a
leader by putting him or her through many different tasks to find their strength and
weakness. We can see how they operate under pressure, and how they treat others
around them. Some people are into this quality through a trait. Passed on from
generation to generation come. Some may not have this gene but learn the quality by
following. I believe a good leader will withstand the duty. If not, they are not ready to
lead. How can you lead without earning the privledge to do so? You can’t lead without being put through a test?
