So While reading for my PMA I came accross different things about leadership and leaders, example of one of the things I found is that it is good for leaders to build on some skills like interpersonal, conceptual, technical and administrative skills. interpersonal skills has to do with relating with people in general, conceptual skills has to do with working with concepts and ideas, they relate to the thinking ability of the leader. Whether the leader is able to think things through, break down tasks in constructive manner for followers, technical skills has to with on the jobs skills, whether the leader has the required skills for the job, and I think since he is not a superhuman, he should be teachable and also think his ability to recognize the gap and the need to be trained is very important. And also his ability to balance the skilled workforce and unskilled ones is key and finally, administrative skills has to do with managing the people, resources etc in the country or organisation depending on the context.
