Based on my current position I would say one leadership characteristic that seems important to me right now is tolerance of stress. While being adaptable to situations is definitely up there, I feel like having high tolerance to stress in a leader, also affects how the whole team works together.

In my current role, there are so many issues popping up here and there that need to be resolved since we are currently in a phase of transition. In times where I felt my team and I were emotionally and mentally overwhelmed, we looked to our manager for guidance and each time we would bring up an issue to her, she showed us such composure and calmness that I felt like it reassured us and brought us to a state where we are able to think through things together to come up with a solution.
