Bizmates Program: Level 4 Rank D Lesson 9: Leadership


Lesson 9 の Try 4 から。事前に考えておいて、以下の 5 つを挙げた。

  • fair
  • confident
  • assertive
  • polite
  • respect



  1. What do you think are the 5 most important things for effective leadership?

The first characteristic is to be fair or have fairness. Every leader must be fair to everyone in the team and around him or her. Fairness is very important to being a successful and effective leader.

Confidence - Leaders should be confident in their visions. No one wants to follow a leader who is not confident.

Assertive when making or sharing opinions. Their understanding matters, and it's important that they can communicate with others.

Being polite means respecting others. To be an effective leader, an individual should be an excellent communicator.

Respect - show respect to others.


  • Punctuality
  • Integrity
  • Loyalty
  • Credibility
  • Humbleness

なるほどー、そっちのほうがいいですね、というかさすが表現のチョイスが洗練されている、というか彼女の性格が出ているチョイスだなーとも思った。誠実さと謙虚さみたいなところを重視していることが伺え、それは彼女自身が誠実で謙虚な人柄だからというのを反映していそう。それにしても Punctuality はちょっと面白いな。国民性的なところもあるのかもな、日本人ったら時間厳守は当然のこととして敢えて挙げようと意識に上らない気がする。



Using logic as means of persuading others

This is typically male. I think this is also a stereotype, but men tend to think logically.

Using flattery and praise to convince others

This sounds more for females. Women are better at praising others and saying good things to others. They are open to expressing their thoughts.

Using existing relationship to lead and persuade others

I think both genders will take this approach, but it sounds more female. Women are good at building relationships with others. They do business based on relationships and connections.

Using intimidation to gain support

This sounds like it's for men, and it's a bad tactic. Sometimes, men tend to do this to achieve their goals.

Using rules and procedures to get support

I think it sounds like a male tactic. In large organizations, men prefer making rules or complex procedures.

Using bandwagon tactics to gain support

I think both genders might use this approach, but it sounded more like a female approach. It could be based on the relationship.


Lesson 9 終了、次は Lesson 10。
