IELTS Speaking topic: A friend who is a good leader

Describe a friend who you think is a good leader.
You should say:
who this friend is
how you first met
how other people behave towards him or her
and explain why you think he or she is a good leader.

Let me tell you about one of my close friends who worked with me in the same company several years ago. Actually it was he who had an interview with me when I applied for a position in that company after I graduated from university, we had a nice talk and he was obviously satisfied with my related experience.

He was really an optimistic and infectious man with his work, therefore when he started to be responsible for the new business, some colleagues were very interesting in his plan and tasks, and were always likely to offer their help. Besides, his superior was quite confident of his success, and gave some necessary financial and human supports.

I had been working with him for over two years. I believe he was really good at encouraging his staff into doing something that seemed to be tough to realise and inspiring them to greatness. As our business was quite new in the market, he made us feeling like pioneers in this field, which definitely inspired my enthusiasm tremendously. It was really a cool thing, because to be honest, I learned the most things in my work during that time.

    • Hello, hisham, nice meeting you here and thank you for your dropping by for a visit. As for your ielts result, I believe that a good score is a combination of both language ability and exam’s skills. So you are supposed to put great efforts to both sides if you need a higher score. Hope I could help you in my website!

      Sincerely,
      Pirlo

    • Well, you can check this essay, and say that you do the job as an intern, which I think will suits you. Sometimes you need to tell a fictional story to answer the questions in the speaking test.
