Leadership Traits

Sarah Cole

Trait #1: Enthusiasm

People will follow leaders who are enthusiastic and knowledgeable about their jobs. Show enthusiasm about a subject, and others will want to explore and follow that subject. If you don't show enthusiasm and present your dislikes, people will follow you in the wrong direction. Enthusiasm is a strong feeling of an active interest of a subject you feel strongly about or pursue in.

What Kind of Person is This?

A leader with enthusiasm shows interest in the subject and draws attention to themselves, therefore drawing people into the subject their talking about.
