“Great leaders embrace failure, learn from it and then use as motivational fuel to succeed” – Des Hague
There are many elements that make up a great leader but one that can never be underestimated is that a great leader has to have heart. What I mean is that no matter what the odds, the obstacles to overcome a great leader will never give up, place blame on others or resort to pointing fingers unless at themselves. That is their hallmark. You will fail many times and face gut wrenching losses but a great leader will press on and use those losses to fuel future successes.
