To be a leader is to be able to listen to your team, to have the full knowledge about their strengths and weaknesses, to prepare the right atmosphere so they can work. to be honest and responsible, to have an opinion and accept challenges.
You might think it’s even hard to do it, do I have all these characteristics? Yes it’s challenging.
