When one looks at the characteristics that are associated with leadership - such as vision, confidence, and determination - we all agree that these are often required for success. Coupled with this, one also believes that truly effective leaders are distinguished by a high degree of emotional intelligence, which includes self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills.”
