What makes a good leader?

What makes a good leader? Is it charisma, imagination or simply the ability to inspire those around you? Deming would argue not. It does not matter on the person, and whether they are different, because they will follow in a similar pattern to those as before, and will continue to dig away at the pit that they are in. No, it is not the abilities, the charisma or personality of the leader, but it is knowledge of that leader that can lead to change, to improvement and innovation within an organisation or society. A leader without knowledge will follow and act in a similar way to those before them. A leader with knowledge will act upon that learning, and will implement new ideas and processes. Therefore, I feel that it is knowledge that makes a good leader, not someone who is just charismatic or likeable. A charismatic man may inspire those around him to follow, but they could ultimately follow him blindly to their destruction. A less characteristic person with knowledge, could lead them down the correct path to success.
