Leadership

There are many attributes, skills and characteristics associated with leadership and if you want to become a great leader, it’s one of the things that’s best learned by being a leader. Many people see the elements of public-speaking and being in charge as key, but often great listening skills and delegation are just as important. 


Some of the key characteristics you should be able to demonstrate include taking responsibility, co-ordinating and delegating, motivating others, setting targets, making decisions and developing teams. City offers lots of opportunities to take additional responsibility and gain experience as a leader. For example, coaching a football team, setting up and running a society, entering a team in the CitySpark competition.
