  2. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Authoritativeness is one of the attributes of true leadership. In other words, whoever that professes to be a true leader should be authoritative in nature. I mean, he or she is expected to be commanding respect and he or she should be self-confident as well, wherever he or she goes. Besides that, for Clarification's sake, to be commanding respect means to be respectable or rather to be worthy of other people's respect. Whereas, to be self-confident means to believe in one's own ability, worth and potential. That is to say, every true leader is expected to be worthy of other people's respect. Moreover, he or she ought to believe in his or her own ability, potential and value. To my mind (in my opinion), anyway. ~Emeasoba George
