  1. What makes a great leader? I think a great leader should not work alone and make all the rules himself. As Abraham Lincoln said, ” a government by the people for the people, This is a democracy he does not hold al the power. I think in a democracy a leader must give us all the information and not lie. We must be able to trust our leader. They also should have great, creative and awesome ideas. So they need to be very smart.

  2. What Makes a good leader you ask? A good leader is one that makes good choices and respects teachers and other adults if you are a kid. I think a leader needs to set a good example for the others so they can follow you. In the case of kids to be a leader they have to really care about your classmates and other students in your school. Also this does not mean a leader cannot make a mistake. If you make a bad choice own up to it. Tell someone you trust. If you don’t whatever your bad choice was it will just become a bigger problem if you do not face it. A good leader must be hones and try their best at all times . I think these are the things that make a good leader.

  4. I think to be a leader at P.S.373 you have to get 50’s everyday . You have to be able to ignore when people say something bad about you. Even when you are upset you have to make the right choices. Choices that are good for you and others. I think you have to work well with others. You can only do this if you have respect for others. I think you have to be honest and this can be hard. But if you lie you just get in more and more trouble. I think a leader must be brave enough to admit when they are wrong. If you do something wrong it is your fault, no one else’s. I think a leader must help others. When people are having a bad time a good leader tries to help and you could talk to them.

  5. What Makes a good leader?
    I think a good leader needs to be able to work well with others and have an open mind to accepting newi deas. Working well with others is important because when there are no arguments and people listen they can come up with good ideas and solve problems. I think being open to other and new ideas is so important because that is when you can really solve problems and get the best ideas out there. I think people that work in a group come up with the best ideas.

    A good leader knows whats best for his or her people. they help you learn, then do whats best to help you have a great future. a good leader needs to have patience but be firm. they need to be open to listen. they can’t be bossy. when i think of a good leader, i think of my mom.
    A great leader should be able to change things and have the will to do it. I know one person that is a great leader and that is my mom. she is nice and trustworthy and strong. I think a great leader is smart,courageous,kind and funny. i think of people that are leaders as kind, caring people and that anyone can be a leader if they have the right attitude and knowledge. Great school leader constantly pay attention, they build a culture focussed on the student learning. they comfort teachers, they invite,they inspire,the students and classes in ways that lead to inprovment. theywant to be trusted,”not simply liked.”
    Great leaders never stop trying!!!

    A lot of things to make a good leader, such as being honest,caring and be able to work well with others. A good leader must be intelligent,and Hillary Clinton is a nice women to be president, I want Hillary to make 300 dollars. helping others if they need help with their work. Leaders should earn their points and should say please and thank you all the times.Do your school work every day you come to school. and do not follow others,follow yourself, you have your own brain. Be good at reading, writing and spelling. whatever your teacher says for you to do. if you see sombody doing something wrong, you don’t copy them. Do your homework!!

    A good leader is strong and smart that way people look up to you with respect. he/she is going to be honest so the people can trust him/her, he or she should be good with money because it shows he is responsible. he should be smart so he can teach the people who follow hIM. He/she is ble to work well with others. The president works in the white house in Washington D.C. The house is big. Mr president is our leader. the salary is 4000,000 a year!!. The president is tall. You have to be 35 to be president. A good leader must listen and be respectful.

    Being a good leaders needs to be nice,friendly,kind helpful and so much more. teamwork a leader might be the head of the organization or team, but he or she cannot function well without teamwork. Another important factor of what makes a good leader is strong. a great leader isn’t scared of his enemy. A great leader sets a good example for his or her responsibility. if you have strong feeling against cheating, then you yourself should not be tempted to cheat. An effective leader takes responsibility. being responsible also means avoiding disaster and making the right decisions. quick thinking is an essential leadership skills. the success of a group has a lot to do with both the leader and the team.

    What makes a good leader?
    There are many definitions of leadership. The collins English dictionary defines leadership as ”the leader (s) of a party or group. ”yet true leadership is much more than that. Leader can be the CEO of an organization, or first year employee who leads his or her team to success behind the scenes. A leader might lead through official authority and power, yet just as often great leaders lead through inspiration, persuasion and personal connections.

    A good leader has to have integrity, not only looking at their politics, but we should also look at their character. A good leader should also be dependable and have perseverance. such as, Martin Luther King Jr. he gave his all to make a positive impact on the world around them. He fought to the end to bring peace and equality. A good leader must be determined to achieve their goal.They should also hold some of the amount of power, their power should encourage followers to step up and speak for themselves. A good leader should make a positive impact on the world and inspire others to do the same. Lead by example,they can talk all day but they need to prove their leadership by their actions. Its not just being physically strong, they need to be mentally strong to make firm decisions. titles are important but they don’t have much value when it comes to leading.

    A good leader has to be calm and brave in the face of danger and not run around and flop like a duck. They also need to be smart when in battle. they need to think about what attacks he or she is going to use and where there going to hit. They need to be honest to the people, if there is something good or bad thats going to happen they need to have real concern and not just pretend to care about the people. Last they need accept ideas and thoughts from people because you never know someone could have an idea that could help us defend our state and country from any threat.

    Being a good leader needs to be nice to everyone and being a leader does not curse, stays in area and does not run out of class and he or she raises a quite hand!
