If we cannot show other people that we are honest in our words and actions then who will be willing to follow us? Being a leader you must think about those who are looking up to you and following you not just about yourself. A leader needs to realize that if they are not an honest leader then they could get themselves and the people following them into trouble. Leaders must be moral and virtuous people. They should never take bribes or act corruptly.
By working with each other and completing their duty’s they are gaining trust, while becoming very loyal towards each other. Duty is to fulfill your obligations. Not just completing your work at the minimum standard but to always do your best. Taking the initiative to do things is a great example of fulfilling your duties. Completing your duty also prevents illegal orders because leaders have no choice but to do what is right.
Good leadership Being a manager means you must have self-discipline and leadership skills. If you can't lead then you shouldn't be in charge. Good leadership means being communicative, diplomatic but at the same time courageous to say what you think. Being a leader means you won't be inconsistent just to be Mr. or Mrs. Popular. You will gain more respect by sticking to your instincts, doing what you believe is right but not being so rigid that you can't revise your opinions.
Loyalty: - I believe in faithfulness or a devotion to a person, country, group, or cause Respect: - one of the most important things for me is to treat other as I wish to be treated. Integrity: - I believe the better of a person I am, the better an image I present. Honesty: - I believe the more honest I am, the more trustworthy I become. Responsible: - I must be responsible in life so that others can rely on me. Responsibility means doing the best I can to honor and fulfill my obligations and promises.
While I understand the views of both men, I believe that Machiavelli’s perspective is more prevalent and useful in the world today. Machiavelli rights that a leader needs to show his prowess and confidence in his decisions which helps make people want to follow the leader. He writes with a more realistic but cynical point of view. Lao Tzu writes from the side that all humans are inherently good. Lao Tzu trusts all people to do the right thing and says not to force any expectations into people as that will cause them only to backlash.
The ability to persuade and convince others to accept one's argument or reasoning is such a skill, even though that some people are more gifted at it than others. Good leaders should also have integrity of character and lead by example. These qualities, which go to make up character, can be instilled as well. Leadership learning is a life activity. It can never be done because there is always more to learn.

A simple definition of leadership is that leadership is the art of motivating a group of people to act towards achieving a common goal. Being a leader does not refer to a straightforward job; however, it requires overcoming obstacles, handling competing agendas, and working with limited resources. Great leaders have brought their nation in prosperity and order, whereas incompetent leaders led the nation in ruins and made their people suffer and die. But first, what kind of person is a great or a good leader, there are two types of goodness which are morally good and a good leader in the sense that they stay in power. From my perspective an effective leader is a morally good leader; in addition, he should stay in power.
Traits of a Good Leader with Character A good leader must have quality or distinguishing features, such as their character.
