On BMGTV, the founder of ACT also talked about the main qualities of a good leader. According to Tinatin Rukhadze, the most important thing is that the leader be a source of inspiration for the team.
“Too often, managers and leaders think that good leadership means doing something better than anyone else. In my opinion, a good leader should inspire the team to create something better. Leadership means interacting with the team and supporting it. Managers often think that they have a lot of work and no time for communication, but the best thing a leader can do is to establish contact with employees, and then these people will do an excellent job" - Tinatin Rukhadze.
