Character and Traits in Leadership Managers are people who do things right, while leaders are people who do the right thing. To reach excellence you must first be a leader of good character. You must do everything you are supposed to do.
Organizations will not achieve excellence by figuring out where it wants to go, having leaders do whatever they have to in order to get the job done, and then hope their leaders act with good character.
This type of thinking is backwards. Pursuing excellence should not be confused with accomplishing a job or task. When you do planning, you do it by backwards planning. However, you do not achieve excellence by backwards planning. Excellence starts with leaders of good and strong character who engage in the entire process of leadership.
And the first process is being a person of honorable character. Waste no more time arguing what a good man should be. However, we do not know exactly how much or how early character develops. But, it is safe to claim that character does not change quickly. This behavior can be strong or weak, good or bad.
A person with strong character shows drive, energy, determination, self-discipline, willpower, and nerve. She sees what she wants and goes after it. On the other hand, a person with weak character shows none of these traits. She does not know what she wants.

The amount of power leaders are willing to share with their team members is an important topic in both research and practice. Autocratic leadership is characterized by the centralization of decision-making and directive power in a single dominant leader (Bass and Bass, , Jago, , Lippitt, ) and creates a clearly defined intrateam hierarchy.
Decisions are the heart of success and at times there are critical moments when they can be difficult, perplexing and nerve racking. This side provides useful and practical guidance for making efficient and effective decisions in both public and private life.
