The qualities of a good leader require courage, strength, knowledge, good morals and power. A good leader should possess all these qualities mentioned. Without these qualities a leader may lack in certain areas which may cause them to be an unsuccessful leader. All good leaders should require good qualities within them in order to lead or gain respect from others.

Good leaders should have strength and courage. If a leader is not strong or courageous, then he or she may not be fit for the role. Leaders need to have a strong courage in their hearts because anything at anytime could happen, but it takes a good leader to act on the situation with courage and strength without panic or fright. Also, every good leader should attain knowledge. Without knowledge, a leader may not be able to make the right decisions. Knowledge is a very important factor as it strongly contributes to great leadership. Having good morals is very important as well. If a leader does not have good morals, it can bring down a nation. Each leader should have good morals set in their minds in order to rule. Also, a good leader should have power. They should know that they are in charge and that they get to make the calls and decisions. These are some qualities of a good leader.

Based on reading Act 1 of Julius Caesar, it indicates that Caesar does not have the qualities it takes to become a good leader. But from reading all of Act 1, I believe that the conspiracy is being justified. I believe that Caesar has some good qualities in order to be a ruler and that Rome did not just choose Caesar to reign if he did not have any good qualities of a leader. I believe that the conspiracy is being justified because they wanted Pompey to reign instead of Caesar, but they did not have it their way. That is why I believe that Caesar instills qualities of a good leader.
