Essay Contest

In my eyes a good leader must have good communication qualities. More specifically, a good leader must be a good listener, must speak with a welcoming tone and must help others. People follow a leader when the leader can communicate in a way that makes them feel respected and valued. Leaders accomplish this by the words they say, the tone they use and the body language they show. For these reasons, you can see that communication is key to being a good leader. It’s not just the leader’s words but also their actions and how they make others feel.

A good leader is someone who is able to talk and listen to someone without getting upset. If you have good communication skills it will lead you to be a better leader. To be a good leader, you need communication skills and people skills, such as not being demanding, by listening to other people’s ideas, by including everyone, even if you are in charge. So know some communication skills, have good eye contact, be involved, ask questions. Being a leader doesn’t mean a one-way conversation. A leader should listen, talk, listen and allow others to talk, that’s what I think a leader is or should be.

A good leader should have good communication skills. This includes being willing to help others and being kind to them. A good leader is a good listener, that does good deeds and keeps everything structured. A good leader does this every day by reminding people of the rules, giving them positive feedback and teaching others to be leaders as well. A group works best when everyone works together.
