5 Quality Traits Every Great Leader Possesses

A leader is a person that leads, guide or conduct a group of person. While some have their leadership traits inate, some have to review their character in other to be seen as one.
Here are 5 traits to make people see you as a leader:
1. Learn To Listen Attentively
Active listening is one of the traits that will make others see you as a leader. Most people think leading means speaking out, but they are wrong.
According to Elizabeth McLeod “If you focus your mindful listening, you can garner more opportunity without saying a word”
Mindful listening goes beyond keeping quiet and nodding. As a matter of fact, it involves focusing on the person you are listening to is saying, understand their body language while maintaining eye contact. Oh, it looks easy to you right? but only few people pay attention to this.
When you listen actively, you can sort and frame information, and when you finally speak, everybody will listen. This is because they know you have understood their point of view perfectly. Lastly, McLeod said ” If you want people to see you as an authority figure, stop talking, take a break and listen”.
2. Make Your Meeting Count
The best time for your colleagues to see the stuff you are made of is during a meeting. So, If you want others to see you as a leader, make every meeting count.
Therefore, be active in every meeting by voicing your opinion and making essential comments. Read any pre-reads, listen actively through out the meeting, asking intelligent questions etc.
3. Find A Mentor
Developing your skill continuously is one of the traits that will make others see you as a leader. The easiest way to develop your skill is to find a mentor.
You can take your boss as a mentor, but if you don’t want to use him, start looking for someone else.
4. Look for root causes rather than shortcuts or quick fix
When things go wrong in an organization, some people will always look for quick fixes. However, if you want people around you to see you as a leader, always look for the root cause of any problem.
The first step to do this, is to accept failure confidently. Once you accept failure, look for proactive ways of preventing it for happening again.
5. Always speak the truth even when things go wrong
When things go wrong, never cast a blame, rather speak the truth. And speaking the truth involves explaining what happened and strive towards fixing it.
People that cast blames are those that avoid responsibility, and this only distract you from solving the problem.

8 Facts Every Man Should Know About Sex During A Woman's Period

1. The Basic Biology
Sex ed. told you the basics about a woman's menstrual cycle, but here's what's important to know for this situation. A period marks the end of the body's monthly attempt to get pregnant.

If an egg doesn't get fertilized, the body can't sustain this special womb, so hormone levels drop and the lining is shed.
