Becoming a leader was a unique experience for me every time I had it. Although there were certain basic things that I always had to retain e. g. tolerance and hard word, yet the circumstances in which I had to practice them differed from each other by a great deal. The most surprising thing I learned after becoming a leader was that I had to reengineer things every time I was supposed to serve as a leader in a new environment. Everything made a difference ranging from the scope of work, the type of work, the locality, the macro culture of the society in which my organization functioned, and the micro-culture of the organization itself.
I learned that circumstances would never change to adapt to me. I was the one who had to adapt to the circumstances to play the role of the leader successfully. Another unexpected outcome of becoming a leader was that I also became a good manager. From my experience, I can tell you that anybody who is a good leader is also a good manager because there are a lot of skills that are common between a leader and a manager; supervision, agility, and tolerance to name a few.
Occasionally after becoming a leader, I was also required to serve as a manager at certain places, and I could feel a dramatic change in my management skills, and the change was for the better! Leadership requires tolerance. After having served as a leader in a wide array of organizations with different circumstances and organizational cultures, one quality that I have felt the most need of was tolerance. Leaders assume the maximum power and authority in any organization.
The decision-making authority fundamentally rests with the leaders. After performing one’ s duties as a leader for some time, there is an involuntary and unintended feeling of superiority inculcated in the leader, which makes it difficult for the leader to deal with the disobedient subordinates. A leader overwhelmed with this feeling of superiority in comparison to the subordinates takes even such things very serious and personal that he would have laughed away outside the job.
