A few key points that I believe make a great leader are:

- The ability to inspire people, even in the most adverse of situations. Teams look to their leader to not just provide day-to-day answers, but for recognition and belief in their ability to do better. Inspiring people to excellence is a big part of effective leadership.
- Leading by example. Every so often, I believe leaders are required to roll up their sleeves and put a shoulder to the grindstone along with their team.
- The ability to buffer the team from the regular challenges of running a business. Especially in crises, a leader should be able to deliver the message to their team so that they understand the challenge and have a clear idea of what steps to take to get past it. Leaders do not transmit problems, but filter them.
