2. They don’t devalue their relationships
As a leader the most valuable asset is your relations with coworkers. In order to achieve a difficult goal, a great leader supports others to achieve their objectives. They don’t try and replicate anyone else, even someone with lots of captivation.
3. They don’t change their vision
A great leader has the vision and belief that any goal can be accomplished. They don’t made amendments in their vision, they motivate and use the command and energy to get it done.

5. They don’t think about work-life balance
Great leaders are mostly overachievers. That means their first priority is always work; it’s what they live for. They are not easygoing, fun-loving people, irresponsible who live for the weekend. They do what they love doing, and that’s work. That’s what makes them GREAT!

Great leaders keep their commitments, no matter much it is difficult or it damages. Their commitments are not subject to change. They value their words and moralities above anything else.
7. They don’t sit in judgment of others

8. They don’t look at the small picture
Great leaders think big; they are bold and take challenges. They reach for the impossible and look for that next big opportunity or challenge around the road.
9. They never stop asking questions

10. They don’t say “Never”
Outstanding leaders make things possible and accomplish the impossible. “Never” is a word that is not in their dictionary.
11. They don’t fall

12. They don’t like to be a ruler
They guide and mentor others to follow them. They don’t put restrictions on others so that they feel they are living under a dictatorship.
13. They don’t live in fear
They don’t pay attention to the negative voices in their heads. They don’t let their fear stop them from taking risks. Don’t let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning
14. They don’t shy away from change
It’s not hard to identify a good leader, as they are the one who not only live outside their comfort zone whenever needed, but motivate others to do the same. They inspire and enable others to face challenges and learn new things.
15. They don’t care about the platform
Great leaders don’t lead a platform they lead people. They care about the people around them not things. They recognize without great endowment and enthusiasm even the best strategy will fail.
16. They don’t make the same mistakes over and over
Strong leaders accept responsibility, hold themselves accountable for their performance and learn from their previous mistakes. Consequently, they don’t repeat those mistakes again and again. Instead, they move ahead and make better assessments in the future.
