    A person can be very controling, very sure of them self, and very quick to make decisions and still NOT be a good leader. To answer your question, focus on the very word "Leader". A good leader is not someone who can drive people like cattle to do whatever he/she wants others to do. The leader must be willing to do the dirty jobs right along side the followers. Our society has gotten this philosophy all mixed up. Mid and upper management positions have become far, far away from true leadership. They seem to feel that being paid more money, and given more perks gives them the right to ignore others. Instead of leading, this new breed are more like slave drivers. I have spent the past 30+ years studying qualities of good and bad leadership. It is very difficult to find a true leader.

    Okay, there are a LOT of qualities of a good leader. Here are a few examples:

    - able to sacrifice his/her own time/willpower/energy/etc for others

    - humility

    - has power over others

    - sways the crowd easily; has great persuasion skills

    - knows how to get things done

    - always has great ideas

    - strong mindset

    - professional (esp when representing your group), but also fun to be around (esp for teenagers; more supporters

    - wise/smart/intelligent book-smart wise and also people-smart

    - role model

    - clearly understands what he/she is talking about esp about the subject/theme of the group (ie a ACS club captain must be intellect about the subjects of cancer- best if all kinds of cancer)

    - great time management; always gets things done on/before time

    - doesn't get distracted easily

    okay these are just a few out of a MYRIAD of leadership skills. I'm sure you can find reasons to support those easily. Good luck! (:
