Despite being a negative character, Gabbar Singh portrayed true leadership qualities. Even the fear of death was not enough to make Gabbar’s men separate from him. It is one of the qualities that made him so successful in everything he did, good or bad.

This means that Leos love to make their presence felt from time-to-time, and Gabbar teaches that very clearly. He constantly sends his bandits to Ramgarh so that his presence in the market can be felt. He constantly made the villagers remember that he is the ‘king of the village’ and everyone must be scared o him. This made him feel good about himself and gave him a sense of pride.

Communication skills

Leos have great communication skills, and so does Gabbar. He used to talk to his team constantly. The ups and downs of his voice, his body language, his eye contact and the dialogue delivery were all very impressive, and just the time of communication you need to build a good team.

Team Building ability

Leos have an amazing team building quality, just like Gabbar. Honestly, Gabbar alone could not achieve everything he did, but he was a great team builder. He formed a team of like-minded people, manipulated them, and himself became their leader. In this way, the network acquired credibility and power.
