Democratic leadership entails 1) Fairness 2) Competence 3) Creativity 4) Courage 5) Intelligence 6) Honesty
Innovative Leadership is a leader who is capable of influence inspiring creative efforts. Affiliative leadership described in one word is harmonious. Effective leadership is a combination of the traits, where neither one is more effective than the other but it is somewhere in between each qualities.

Title: How to Lose Friends and Alienate People
In Ling Ling’s speech she shared how she dreaded and aimed not to be a blunt communicator like her dad. In her quest to be the opposite of her dad in terms of communication, she stumbled across Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People”.
In the book Ling Ling discovered 3 lessons in particular that stood out the most and they were smile 1) Smile 2) Praise 3) Avoid arguments.
However, following the advice in her efforts to be the opposite of her dad, she somehow became a pushover that never spoke her mind and never fought for what she believed in. That caused her to lose her friends and alienate the people she loves.
Ling Ling concluded that the thing about communication is that it’s a two way street. We have to listen as much as we talk, and we have to give as much as we take. Communication is about a push and pull – a balance. Meaning we have to praise as much as we appraise.
