IELTS Speaking Part 3 Questions & Answers – Topic: Leadership

1. What are the main qualities of being a good leader?

The definition of an ideal leader varies from people to people for good reasons, I suppose. As far as I’m concerned, a leader who is a true influencer and would leave great impacts on his people is someone who is a man of his word, knowledgeable and inspiring with a visionary mindset. It’s an undeniable truth that neither an organization nor any person wants to be led by those who are pretentious and lack of capacity and vision. We all need those who take actions and are ahead of their time to guide us to a better place.

2. How do you see a leader now and in the future?

I personally don’t think there would be much difference between leaders now and some time in the future for their core values are much likely to be the same. By this, I mean most true leaders tend to operate on similar principles such as innovation, integrity, positivity and so on. Not all these characteristics would be acquired or presented by all leaders but some of them would. Hence, in spite of living in different times, leaders would still be those with some particular admirable traits that are distinguishable.

3. Do you think there will be changes?

Well, changes are inevitable since they are the causes of any advancement. Therefore, it’s not surprising that there might be some alterations in leadership style and their effects. If we trace back history, the differences are noticeable. Many emperors or royal governors in ancient time ruled their kingdom by inflicting fear and pain on their people, which flatly contradicts how leaders conquer others’ minds and hearts nowadays. Modern leaders no longer impose anything on anyone but inspire them with their vision and yearning for a better life.

4. How does leadership apply to children at school?

Leadership is not only adults’ realm but people of all ages can practice it, including children. Most are not natural-born leaders, instead, they are likely to go through painstaking processes to attain certain skills since they were young. For example, kids with a leadership mindset probably stand out for their initiation, persistence and optimism. If they take part in group activities, potential leaders are usually those who take on team leader roles and enthusiastically enjoy the game as well as encourage others to do the same.
