Good leaders are both forceful and believable

Consider taking the initiative to lead to a broad scale—from the
assertive, progressive employee, to the team leader or manager, or even as an
employer or leader of leaders.
No matter what your position within the workplace, you can actively take the initiative to lead. You can focus on achieving an upwardly mobile transition within your organization by
understanding and embracing those traits common to successful leaders. The primary role of a leader is to lead, and in order to lead, you need to stand out, command attention, and demand respect. Leaders usually have a definite vision they are committed to and passionate about.
They know how to plan and build the right team to set process in motion, and they have the bility and desire to see projects through to the end no matter what hazards may come into play. Successful leaders, in effect, achieve force by demanding credibility, commanding attention, and being able to use their interpersonal influence to transform workplace staff, colleagues, and even customers into their devoted entourage.
Demanding credibility is relatively straightforward and easy to attain if you are perceived as being knowledgeable about the subject, issue, or directive of interest.
Commanding attention is also relatively straightforward if your intended audience perceives that you are similar to them, which directly helps them relate, feel comfortable, and want to listen to what you have to say.
Ultimately, though, the essence of creating leadership force comes from the energy that you put forth, as well as the enthusiasm and vitality it displays.
A good golfer’s métier is his or her golfing skill.  A great golfer’s métier is his or her golfing skill, coupled with the mastery of good sportsmanship, rendering him or her an ambassador for the sport.
When you think of a leader that has created force in golf, I am certain that Arnold Palmer immediately comes to mind. He has become a living icon that exemplifies not only the physical abilities, endurance, and dedication required to excel in the sport of golf, but also integrity and professionalism through his lifetime of excellent sportsmanship.
The stronger the team, the stronger the leader
Leaders don’t stand alone, however. They have an established and vast knowledge base backed by competent people resources. The relationship between the effective leader and his support team is definitely symbiotic; they build on one another’s strengths and build together.
