What Makes a Great Leader?Elance_Amy | Mar 03, 2008
People around the world often discuss and debate this question: What makes someone a great leader?
In one of our market research projects, we surveyed a group of Elancers for their perspective on this topic, and asked them to identify the key characteristics of what makes a great leader:
We are not surprised that vision and ability to inspire to act are at the top of the list of characteristics, but interestingly, only a small percentage of survey respondents identified teamwork as key to what makes a great leader.
What do you think makes someone a great leader, and is teamwork a key requirement?
