24 PCB007 MAGAZINE I AUGUST 2020 clear from this example that a leader's industry knowledge, leadership skills, and even charis- ma can make a critical difference in the growth of a company. Intrigued by this idea, the I-Connect007 re- search team recently conducted a survey on leadership, covering everything from leader- ship qualities to stories and lessons learned from inspirational leaders. Read what respon- dents from the industry had to share on the topic of leadership. Leadership Roles According to the survey results, the primary roles of a leader are not to amass bigger of- fices and best-selling books. Rather, the results demonstrated that the most important quali- ties are team leadership, providing inspiration/ motivation, setting goals, having a vision, and communicating well with others. In response to the I-Connect007 survey ques- tion, "What would you consider to be the pri- mary role of a leader," many shared how a leader's role is to: • Lead by example • Provide clear guidance for the team • Mentor others • Support subordinates • Provide a vision and then enable a team to accomplish that vision Leadership Qualities The next survey question was, "What are the qualities of a good leader?" Nearly half of those who responded were clear: A good leader builds a strong team through support and mentorship. Other responses were as im- portant: Effective leaders listen to understand, show integrity, provide inspiration, stay open- minded, push others to excel through person- al example, are respectful, know the strengths and weaknesses of team members, are re- sourceful, demonstrate compassion, and stay up-to-date in their field.
