they want to achieve, and they are sure that they can achieve them. Therefore, individuals, more so leaders who exhibit confidence are likely to become effective mission-driven leaders. Another personality trait is that mission-drive leaders are commonly innovative and creative and this means that individuals with such traits are capable of becoming mission-driven leaders (Lane, 2014). This is because mission-driven leaders need to be able to capitalize on opportunities and mitigate challenges while pursuing their goals as well as those of the organization (Colwell, 2018). It is also notable that most mission-driven leaders are usually highly interactive. This means high instructiveness is another personality trait that can predict that a person is capable of becoming a mission-driven leader. Mission-driven leaders commonly engage with others, more so their followers, to ensure that they all work towards attainment of the organization’s mission and purpose (Lane, 2014).

Self-motivation is another characteristic trait that they posses.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
