Although not every leader has all of the perfect traits, it does not mean they are not a good leader, but you will often find that most leaders will have a common set of qualities that will allow them to lead others. A primary quality that is common in the best of leaders is confidence. When a leader is confident in their decisions the people following them will usually be confident in them as well, as what trust will the people have if you don’t fully trust your decisions. A leader that is committed to the cause will often have an easier time getting other committed.  When a leader focuses on the specific task or challenge and they are determine to see it through this shows the great quality of commitment. The ability of adaption if a problem occurs or if something doesn’t go quite as plan is also a very important. They are able to change their strategy or idea of approach to suit the situation better, allowing for an effective completion of the task. Taking responsibility for your actions or “bad” decisions is a very important quality when it comes to leadership. A responsible leader will take responsibility for their own actions and even the actions of the entire group if they were the main decision maker in the process. The last important quality is integrity, being truthful with your followers will build their trust in you, people will look for honesty in leaders and its important for it to be there. Its important for the leader to give off accurate and factual information to the people to keep that trust.
