What traits do they possess?
A good leader is team orientated and does not think about his own personnel gain when he completes a task, instead he thinks about the team's long term gain in accomplishing the task at hand. In addition to being team orientated, a good leader is also just and impartial. He is not biased towards a particular person or belief and considers the ideas provided by all of his group members, in other words, he knows when to be a follower. A good leader also believes in himself and his groups members and trusts that the task given to each of them can be accomplished in time and with good quality. A good leader is also an excellent listener. He will listen to your problems when you tell them to him and will help you think of ideas on how to solve those problems. He will also work out a compromise with you should you approach him with a reason about not being able to complete a task. Finally, a good leader will be honest and keep to his promises and not go back on them.
How do you think a good leader manages crisis under stressful situations?
A good leader would categorize the problems he has under not urgent and not important, not urgent but important, urgent but not important and urgent and important. He will then split up the urgent things that have to be done with his group members with reasons on why the task must be completed and give them a deadline to complete the task. He would also distribute the work fairly with his group members, taking into consideration the current workload that each member has.
