INTRODUCTION
Leadership is perplexing. Each of us thinks we know what it
means yet our ideas about it often do not match. One person‟s
image is the leader as hero
 – 
 
another‟s focuses on the leader as
chief servant. And things become no clearer when one consults the hundreds of volumes on the subject on the shelves of the local business bookshop. They just add to the confusion with their various models, and few of them have anything to say about family business. Everyone in a family firm knows that leaders are confronted by special issues and demands, but: Is there a special way of leading the family firm? Are there  particular traps to watch out for? How can family influences be a force for good and not a source of disturbance? What specific measures and methods can be used to master the familiar challenges of governance, succession and ownership decisions? There are three key questions to be answered in relation to this topic, which will interweave our account of the Inquiry. They are as follows:
What
is the nature of the challenge in leading a family firm? This encompasses
 
the roles and tasks of the leader, such as the outward facing challenge of leading strategy in increasingly
 
2
competitive markets, and the inward facing challenge to maintain the culture, family values and stakeholder relationships.
Who
should lead? This is especially brought into focus by the challenges around
 
the selection, succession and development of leaders, both family and non-family. What qualities should be sought, and how can the path be smoothed for cooperation, adjustment and achievement?
How
should leaders go about their task, in aligning strategy, family, governance
 
and business processes? When should recourse be made to non-family outsiders and advisors? What kinds of ownership, financial and communication strategies will bind together the elements that make a successful family firm?
CHARACTERISTICS OF LEADER Proactive vs. Reactive
 The exceptional leader is always thinking three steps ahead. Working to master his/her own environment with the goal of avoiding problems before they arise.

Flexible/Adaptable
 How do you handle yourself in unexpected or uncomfortable situations? An effective leader will adapt to new surroundings and situations, doing his/her best to adjust.
A Good Communicator
 As a leader, one must listen...a lot! You must be willing to work to understand the needs and desires of others. A good leader asks many questions, considers all options, and leads in the right direction.
Respectful
 Treating others with respect will ultimately earn respect.
Quiet Confidence
 Be sure of yourself with humble intentions.
Enthusiastic
 Excitement is contagious. When a leader is motivated and excited about the cause people will be more inclined to follow.
