10 skills leaders need

    1. A positive attitude

    It sounds like it might not be a skill, but it can and should be learned and improved

    2. Clear direction

    Great leaders have vision, but if you don't have a vision for what you want, you still need to give clear direction to your followers

    3. Communication skills

    It's critical to have great communication skills in this day and age. See Derek Sivers' customer service email as an example.

    4. Sales

    Not the traditional selling skills that you might think of but selling ideas to customers, internal teams, etc.

    5. Storytelling

    Some of the best leaders are storytellers - they tell a compelling story of why we should follow them

    6. 360 feedback

    Not only do they provide constructive and positive feedback, they also take constructive and positive feedback to improve themselves

    7. Kaizen

    Leaders are constantly improving: constantly improving their selling, storytelling, communication and other skills

    8. Experts in their domain

    Apple's leaders are all experts in their domain. At Apple, they don't have executives or managers that don't know the nitty gritty details.

    9. Influential

    The best leaders have influence. They can influence teams, stories, markets and customers.

    10. Work hard play hard mentality

    Not only do they push themselves and their teams to work hard, they also reward accordingly.
