What makes a good leader

Recommended Posts

Guest Phalix

one who doesn't lead.

if you're talking about a group on dayzrp; get some friends, and run it as if though you're all equal(OOC of course). if you do a mil group for say, IC you are not equal, OOC u are

but if you mean IRL/other things leader-wise. Then someone who can take the heat if your group fucks up.

You must be born a good leader, you know if you are if you truly are one!

But for the main part, be smart and think as a group and not just individuality.

Ask people for their opinions so you can change.

Also don't lead but guide then in the path you want them to go.

And most important, don't be an asshole towards people if they don't share the same thoughts as you for the group.

Become an absolute dictator

Nothing screams louder than authority especially if you send them to the gulags.

But seriously, make everyone equal, the leader shouldn't see themselves as one, the people around them should.

Well it really depends on what type of leader you wanna be tbh

A mix of Vector/Valkerion is a good idea

"a good leader listens to his soldiers, to the men under him. He considers proposals and respects everyone. A good leader has patience and no hunger for power"

Used this in a speech a while ago. When i was still leading my republic #feels :(

When we progress to collectivist anarcho-socialism there will be no need for leaders.

Hate to say it but its something you are born with, and its a mix of charisma, intelligence, and level headedness.

You can improve your leadership qualities but some men are born to lead, others are born to follow. There is nothing wrong with followers, they are necessary if a group is to survive. A group of all leaders is doomed to fail

No one is "born" to lead. Leaders are formed through passion, experience, and hardship. Being in charge of something is fucking easy as fuck but being a leader of something is something entirely different. No one needs a leader as a matter of fact most leaders are the downfall of their crew because their pride gets in the way. The best kind of leaders are the ones who teach people to man the fuck up and take charge. A strong leadership style is teaching others how to do what you do so that one day they will in fact do that and then the cycle continues.

Ultimately there are 3 different kinds of leadership. A Participative Leader, rather than taking autocratic decisions, seeks to involve other people in the process, possibly including subordinates, peers, superiors and other stakeholders. Then there is the delegative leader who delegates authority to certain subordinates and lets them take charge but ultimately assumes all responsibility. Then we have the authoritarian leadership style which takes charge of everything without others input and pretty much says its my way or the high way.

The key to being the best leader is being able to use all those leadership styles effectively.

Leadership is not always a democracy. Sometimes decisions must be made that the members of the group will not like or will disagree with. A good leader knows how to handle people with finesse, tact and honesty. For example- "I know it's not fair we have to do mandatory overtime, but that's the directive I've been given. So how can we go about getting 'er done so that we do the best job possible without killing ourselves." A good leader models the attitude they want those on their team to display and abide by.

A good leader will also listen so that all group members feel heard and understood, even if the outcome will not change. Sometimes simply being heard makes all the difference in the world. Communication is key. Keep it open, be receptive and willing to deal directly with conflict without becoming a dictator or losing your cool. Again model the behavior you want your team to emulate.

Not having a big ego, being an attention whore, or power hungry are essentials. A good leader can step aside and give credit to his or her team to keep them feeling appreciated and feeling productive. If you always want to be the star of the show, then you won't be leading, cause people will be rebelling either silently, or more overtly reacting in passive aggressive ways, or simply sabotaging the project altogether.

A good leader does not train his or her team to be dependent on the leader. They train, mentor, delegate and facilitate so that the team runs smoothly whether they are there or not. That is one of the best signs of a true leader. His or her team feels empowered to carry out what needs to be done and are competent to do so, in the leader's absence.

I don't necessarily think good leaders must be "born" that way, but it is something that comes easier to some than others. If you know your motives for wanting to lead, then you probably have some indication of what type of leader you'll be. Lead by example. Don't give team members jobs you wouldn't be willing to, or haven't already done yourself. It lessens the feeling of a hierarchy, while increasing the feeling of "hey he/she is one of us." There is nothing worse than a leader who leads from the desk, while the team has to do all the shit, and catches all the flack.

A good leader will have the loyalty of the team because they've earned that team's respect. You have to give respect to get it back. Humble, respectful leaders have hardworking, dedicated teams who have their leader's back because they trust him or her to have theirs.
