Without Business the Economy is nothing, so they need many leaders in the business industry. In order for a business leader to become successful, he must possess, if not all, some of these qualities and attitudes:
Always maintain a humble attitude
Remember, “a good leader is a good follower”. Always consider others better than yourself. You may have intelligence, but if you are not being teachable, you’ll not achieve the company’s expectations.
Being positive makes a person a winner. When things go wrong, positive leader will not be discouraged easily. He is always looking forward to the positive result.
Always look for the welfare of the public
As you seek for your company’s excellence, always look for the welfare of the public. Excellent service caters positive and tremendous response to the public which are the main target as clients in a business industry.
Never disregard your weaknesses
Focus on what you do best but never disregard your weaknesses. Your expertise might be the reason why you are hired. If you think you have all what it takes, great. But it doesn’t mean that you’ll no longer work on your weaknesses.
You must have a balanced characteristic. Find means to strengthen your weaknesses like reading books about it and applying it little by little but on a regular basis.
Duplicate and delegate
A smart leader knows how to duplicate and delegate. If you believe you have excellent ideas, assign somebody to be trained and learn your techniques and after evaluating your subordinates, learn to trust and assign sub groups as a team.
Being friendly and approachable is another quality of a goodleader but observe the limitations, to avoid over familiarity.
If you think you have the best system, focus on it and seek the opinion of your employers and colleagues for confirmation and approval.

Be result oriented
Be sure to produce a better result. Keep yourself updated. Never allow yourself to be the last one to know what is happening to the company you are representing. You need not necessarily become a gossip king or queen, but know the current event especially concerning your company.
“A faithful servant is a delight to his/her master”. Do not always look for the gain you might acquire, though everyone deserves compensation, but a faithful person focuses on what he can contribute, rather than what he can get, knowing that profit will follow if we have the right attitude.
Loyalty is accountability. It doesn’t look good if our mouth says we are dedicated, but our heart is not committed. Dedication and commitment should go together.
Love your job
Loving your work inspires a leader. When a leader is inspired, he can produce the best result even in maximum pressures.
Among many business leaders, leadership is one aspect that they tend to neglect. Indeed, to become a successful leader can be hard, but for anyone who possesses the determination to harness his talent and skills, everything is quite possible.
