Transcript of Leadership
A group as a whole usually reflects the mindset and behavior of the leader. Good leadership will help shape a positive environment, maximize efficiency, and promote unity in the group.
1. Keep team members motivated
If team members feel motivated, they are more excited to work. They will also be willing to do what is asked of them and to do it well.

3. Stay humble and down to earth
One of the most important qualities of a leader is to always be humble. While it is also important to be confident, there is a definite line between being "confident" and being "cocky." Team members will not be willing to listen to someone who is arrogant and pompous and instead, they will prefer someone approachable and likable.
"A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame, and a little less than his share of the credit."
2. Lead by example
Team members are usually more likely to follow the instructions and suggestions of a leader who himself exemplifies all the qualities that he asks of his team members.

4. Know how to delegate
In most organizations and groups, the entirety of work is often too much for one person to handle. A good leader knows to delegate tasks to people who have the strengths and abilities to complete them. He or she must be able to trust his group members to finish the task well and to not micromanage.
