 Having these skills takes a lot of time and effort, the term “born a leader” means that the qualities comes from a persons personality, this includes enthusiasm, integrity, toughness, fairness, warmth, humility and confidence. This is so an editor can be demanding to their staff yet with a warmth in their tone and be fair by rewarding any good performances but not having favourites in the company. 
 When controlling a team and evaluating performance, a leader has to ask themselves questions before giving appraisal or taking action: • Has the magazine been a success or a failure? • Can any lessons be learnt from this? • Can action be taken to improve any failures? • What feedback can be given to ensure there is success in the future? ! After planning these questions to be brought up in any up and coming de-briefing sessions, there is also background research that needs to be done to ensure that it comes across to employees in the right way for instance; clear realistic objectives set, shared sense of purposes, an open atmosphere, being able to handle failure and riding out any tough breaks within the company.
