A great leader -

Respects others.
Listens.
Takes and holds others accountable.
Is a motivator.
Asks questions to be clear on expectations of self and others.
Shows leadership through character, not authority.
A mentor or role model - leading by example.

I will use some of the values from Modern Agile as those sum up leadership well:

- Make People Awesome
- Make Safety a Prerequisite
- Deliver Value Continuously

I've had a lot of examples of leadership in military and industry settings. The USAR basically defines leadership as getting others to do what they don't want to do. I've had the most success with that in my military and professional leadership roles by knowing my teams, understanding their issues which are inhibiting them, honestly helping them with those issues, and clearing any roadblocks for them as they come up all with mutual respect and integrity (which ensures even-handed fairness).

The key point to understand is: you do not must being a leader for being project manager. Is like when you practice an sport. Just in case you are interested into leadership then take a look to leadership style because just in case you have to practice one it will depends on the culture the organization where you are working on have implemented. Go to the basement which is inside the philosophy field.
