Leadership in what type of capacity? Business, Social/Club, Family, Military? It all depends on what kind of environment and the group dynamics you will be working with. As for me, I have attempted to emulate some of the most successful leadership qualities I have been exposed to and experienced from my mentors.

Each setting takes a different style and qualities to be successful as a leader, IMHO.

If at all possible find someone who is in a leadership role in the setting you are looking into, and who's style you aspire to and ask them if they would consider mentoring you.

Off the top of my head, I can suggest 2 items that transfer from civilian life and also apply in the military. Consistency in action and deed and fairness in dealing with subordinates at all times.

To be a really good leader you must derive your authority from those below you rather than those above you. If you're a leader that gives the reason why something is to be done by saying "Because I said so!" then you are deriving your authority from above. If you have proven to be a capable leader then your subordinates will follow your directions because they want to and trust you to make the right decisions.

When I was a manager, I always believed in "management by example" whereas I would not expect something from my subordinates that I didn't expect of myself whether it be coming to work on-time, doing the work expected of me or following through on my commitments.

The first thing I keep in mind is you don't deserve respect as a leader you earn it from those above and below your position. People must believe in your honesty and ability. The last thing a leader needs is there people thinking they are dumber than shoes for a rattle snake, that you just know the right people. Always take the time to learn your people, above and below your position and there abilities. A good read would be a book by Richard Marcinko. Leadership Secrets of the Rogue Warrior.

The most important leadership trait is Confidence and a tiny amount of arrogance. Independence as well and strength to back up your own decisions.
