Great video but leadership traits JJ DID TIE BUCKLE make the leader

This video is a classic YouTube hit which makes a great point on leadership and followership.  I like the connection that is made between the leader and the first follower about spontaneous or natural leadership.  In my book, leadership traits of JJ DID TIE BUCKLE are developed to help individuals stand out.  Real leaders who develop their leadership traits in organizations are easy to follow because people in an organization believe in the leader and associate with the leader.  His success is their success and the organization's success is his success.  Traits like exercising judgment and justice (or consistent treatment of all followers) are interwoven throughout an organization by the leader and followers.  It becomes an expectation.  Leaders are dependable, show initiative, and are decisive. 

Leaders use tact in all their dealings, have high levels of integrity, and endurance to see tasks through to the end.  Traits of bearing, unselfishness, courage, knowledge, loyalty and enthusiasm are what make organizational leaders great leaders and help ordinary organizations become great.  The dancing guy video puts a dimension on the study of leadership that makes a great point about the first follower, but it is the unwavering leader with traits like JJ DID TIE BUCKLE that sets the tone and standard that makes an organization or team great.
