he takes responsibility for the decisions he makes. eisenhower is a leader. he took responsiblity when the U2 plane was shot down over USSR. he did not blame the CIA or anybody else for the mistakes
unlike bush who calls himself THE DECIDER but blames everybody for the decision he makes.

"What is your definition of a leader?"
One who "Shepherds [or feeds] the flock of God which is among [us], serving as overseers, not by compulsion, but willingly, not for dishonest gain, but eagerly, not as lords over those entrusted to [them], but [rather as] being examples to the flock, whosoever would be first among [those who would lead], shall be [a] servant of all" 1Pe 5:2,3>Mar 10:44

A leader is one who is not a follower. He/she will do what the Holy Spirit tells them to do even if the others are doing something else.

A leader (Moses) is humble, kind-hearted, and has all of the 9 fruit of the Holy, peace, joy, kindness, patience, self-control, etc.,

A leader will listen and have compassion on others. They will not seek their own desires, but care for the needs of others first before their own needs.

A leader is one who is always ready and willing to be a follower. A person who is always ready to serve and put others before themselves. They are a good listerner with an open mind and a caring heart. They had rather give than receive. They know their value as a person but do not value themselves too highly. They share what they know but are not a know-it-all. A Leader has heart for people.

Someone who is a hard worker. Who sets an example by doing what he /she asks others to do. Eager to lend a helping hand to the ones who need it. Guidance in action not only in words.

Ephesians 4:11-13 And he gave some, apostles, and some, prophets, and some, evangelists, and some, pastors and teachers, For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

"nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock." (1 Peter 5:3) "A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous, one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?)," (1 Timothy 3:2-5) Therefore, a man who has been proven in his own home, first, to see if he can care for people in God's family way.

In addition to what it says in scripture about leaders, I find the best leaders have empathy for those they lead. They also lead by example. Lastly, they are genuine, and are honest about their own shortcomings, not putting on airs, acting holier than thou.
