@mr.Roques: I would go for good ideas since if you have good ideas then you can implement it anyway.

Motivation and good ideas, that characterize young professionals doesn't always go hand in hand with good leadership. But if you had to choose, what would be better?

The issue is this how can employers identify right candidates without paper qualifications? That's difficult though.

Nevertheless, that peculiarity unlimited to technical but also to managerial - business owners mindsets towards MBAs is that - whoever has MBA in an organization got the language to conjure up money and lead people willingly and easily. This is not true with every MBA holder.

@Wale: That is why there are so many issues where you get so many paper qualified people who does not understand the practical values.  I feel the knowledge can be seen when they act on tight pressure situations.

@prabhakar - I agree, that would be ideal. It's not always possible for the leader to have all of the skills of his team. In that situation, leaders need to recognize their own gaps and make sure that they surround themselves with the right skill mix.

I think leadership should be a two way street-we make the boss look good and the boss helps us make the department look good with his or her support, knowledge and fair play.  Praise and appropriate humor add value sprinkled into the mix.

@Ruth - I agree that experience and maturity contribute to good leadership (or at least improve on whatever inate leadership qualities one has). I also think that a great leader is often a servant to his/her subordinates - doing all they can to remove roadblock and empower their personnel.

One of the essential quality of a leader , in my opinion , is that the leader should be capable of playing the role of any of its team members in case of an emergency.  That way the leader is automatically respected by the team members as they know that he is the sum of all of them and nobody among them is indispensable.

Such capability comes only with experience. But normally after certain age the capability to actively participate in the work , diminishes while the capacity to guide and take correct decisions increases.

So the middle age appears to be the right age for the leadership role.

Young children often show signs of leadership but I think people can be taught leadership skills,too.  That doesn't mean they will use them properly, but we can hope!

Its always important to timely reward the perfromers and encourage team work.

@electrnx_lyf, I totally agree with you. A good leader should always encourage his team and reward the performers. He should also keep any eye on the people who are not performing upto their potential and should try to resolve if they are facing any challenges.
