A leader is not an administrator who loves to run others, but someone who carries water for his people so that they can get on with their jobs.

Someone rightly said that a leader has to be practical and a realist, yet must talk the language of a visionary and idealist. I completely agree with this statement. You also must have observed many leaders talking about dreams, hopes, and tomorrows, which indeed motivates people for a better future. Whether they achieve it or not is a different matter altogether. Some of you may have different viewpoints regarding leadership, which is fine, because there are different leadership styles, and people have their own preferences. What remains a fact, however, is that no kind of leadership is considered good or bad. Before we discuss leadership styles, you should take the following quiz to know more about your personal leadership characteristics.
