I found this good list of characteristics of Leader in 'C++ Coding Standard'. Well, c++ coding standard is not a likely place for finding advice on leadership. But sometimes you find get thought gems at unlikely places. So here it is

  1. lead by example
  2. don't ask anything of anyone that they wouldn't do themselves
  3. are called on to make difficult and unpopular decisions
  4. keep the team focused
  5. reward/support their team in whatever they do
  6. keep/clear unnecessary crap out of the way of the team
  7. TAKE the blame when things go wrong and SHARE the credit when things go right.

The advice resonated with how I think.
