OR

"My definition of a leader . . . is a man who can persuade people to do what they don't want to do, or do what they're too lazy to do, and like it." Harry S. Truman, 1884-1972,

OR

"Leadership means a leader who Takes challenges to convert impossible things  into possible and makes people to do work in any situation with high motivation ."

Some skills which leader should have: 

1.     Good Communicator
2.     Good  Motivator
3.     Responsible towards his team in any

Good Communicator 

Communication is one of the key elements of leadership. You can make urself as a leader but the communication is the first step towards leadership and this is natural if you are good at communication then you will be able to convey right message to the right person. And puts you in the right direction for leadership. If employees have no idea what is in your mind, than your purpose will not be solve. Employees are not typically mind readers. So judge your member and try to more understand them and make task easier for them by communicate things in right way

Good Motivator

Motivation is another variable that plays into good leadership. Employees tend to stagnate when motivation decreases. Adding challenges for employees, a fresh challenge always adds excitement and spawns creativity. Challenge your employees with tasks that may be slightly out of their range and let them at it! This increases motivation. Once they have motivation, their self-esteem will rise; thereby raising their motivation level and overall team will get success

Responsible towards his team in any Circumstances

It means that leader should has (guts) curtsey to accept failure but when succeed will happen then he should  give credit to his team

We can take Example of

" Dr. Abul Kalam when he worked in research institute then his boss said that you have to make one rocket/missile in one year time period but he had made in only eight month but it was failed in between space when it was launched on that time media wanted to know the reason of failure that time his boss took the responsibility for failure and but next time he got success but at that time his boss gave credit to Mr. Kalam and said Kalam go and face the media and tell your success story THAT's called true LEADER"

By this example I want to say that true leader always give credit to his team member and also take responsible for failure of his team

"Leaders are made not Born"
