Time management is the key to good leadership qualities

I congratulate Dr Butt on his article about leadership qualities (Features, April 12) and the contract challenges. I would like to add that leaders are very productive usually – they work longer hours and they work better hours.

They get a lot more done than the average person. The leaders realise that everything is learnable through practice and repetition. They manage their time well.

Every positive change in life begins with a clear unequivocal decision that you are going to either do something or stop something. Significant change starts when you decide to either get in or get out, either fish or cut bait.

Decisiveness is one of the most important qualities of leaders. I would suggest the most important quality in showing leadership is to learn and practise time management techniques.
