  1. A good leader should give a good impression of himself/herself to the other people to be able to give a good example of himself/herself, so he/she will be able to lead us. When we are doing teamwork, he'she should lead us and make things as organize as possible.

  2. A leader must be humorous, must be calm, understanding, upright, open. Leaders must be able to handle pressure and insanity from others yet not fall to the ground laughing out loud. They must stay calm even in the most desperate of times. They must be able to handle tasks which would destroy others. I must make the class look good to external visitors as I am the publicity head. :) A leader must also give a good impression.

  3. A leader is someone who not only leads followers but also is respected by his followers. A person who "bosses" people around is not a leader but a self-interested tyrant who always wants his way. A true leader puts himself before others and takes full responsibility of his mistakes and must also be decisive and logical. In my roles as a leader, I think I lack the ability to get things in order and getting attention from my subjects easily. I have to be more strong and a little more stern if things get out of hand.

  4. A leader must look out for his peers and must be calm all the time as if the leader panics, the rest of the team will too. Leader must be able to control his peers and make sure they do not get into any trouble. And a leader must be a good lead-er which leads the class and takes charge of his/her responsibilities.

  14. To me, a good leader, or rather a successful leader, requires the most basic value, leadership. Leadership as in he/she is able to lead the team or cohort to victory and success. He/she needs to exercise responsibility in any decision he/she makes. He/she also needs to be open-minded to suggestion made by his/her followers. Apart from that, a good leader needs to have followers. Thus, if your are a follower, try to listen to your leader as he is doing his best to direct the team to victory. To sum it up in a nut shell, subordinates need to respect their leaders in order to succeed. As for me, I need to work on my teamwork as I tend to lead better in smaller groups.

  19. A good leader should treat everybody fairly, in my opinion, a leader who does not treat everybody fairly, and always pass rude remarks about others is not worthy of our respect. A good leader should listen to everybody's view and also be able to include everybody's idea.

    If the above is not achieved, the followers will not feel well treated and not give the leader as much respect as before. A good leader must also understand everybody's strengths and weaknesses. A good leader must always look out for his peers and make sure that they are participating. A good leader should also reflect on wether the above mentioned have been achieved. A good leader will have nothing to hide from his followers, and his followers will also respect him or her.
