eLearning CE: Activity 3 Nur Nadiah (04)

1. What traits do they possess?

Every good leader has a trait that makes them a good leader. Most of the traits are repeated in every good leader. First trait is that they care about their followers. Good leaders create a friendly and comfortable atmosphere for their followers by lending them a ear when they speak. This is evident in leaders such as Winstion Churchill and Bill Clinton. Secondly, leaders that act as facilitators. They facilitate ideas and sharing of information and makes the final decisions. One famous example is Donald Trump. Thirdly, adaptable leaders. Good leaders need to be dynamic as the different situations they are faced with. Next, leaders who motivate their followers. They boost their followers' morale by motivating them and empower them using their own beliefs and personal strengths. A very good example would be Martin Luther King Jr. Lastly, a caring leader. Leaders who are caring always think of taking care of their followers first before taking care of themselves. These leaders feel that they need to serve their followers rather then being the one with the most authority. Famous examples include George Washington and Gandhi. 

2. How do you think a good leader manages crisis under stressful situations?

A good leader would be calm and rational in making a decision on how to manage crisis under stressful situations. They would also ask feedback or suggestions from their followers if they need help.
