I agree with the seven characteristics of a good leader as listed by Freda Manileana. However, I also believe that a good leader is one that considers and values team contributions than being percieved as the source of inpiration, motivation or even example. In this view the leader is not separated from the followers but work in partnership with them. That means every member is a leader at the same time is a follower(collaborative leadership). The idea in this view is no member in the organization is not important, rather each member has a contribution to make that must be valued. And it is the leader who must initiate seeing every body as important.
