[...] They also need to listen. They won't make a great decision [that] compromises the benefits between everyone [if] they don't listen to the concerns and advice of the people who are affected by the decisions. [...]
I'd also add empathy here. It's similar to a leader understanding a little bit of what everyone is doing, even if he's not an expert at everything. To be able to relate to the emotional concerns as well as the practical concerns of the crew, the leader needs to be able to empathize and understand things from other people's perspective.
Actually being a sort of jack-of-all-trades is a form of empathy. It's like a "skill empathy", to understand the nature of the job other people are doing and understand the struggles of the job. Then there's also "emotional empathy" as I'd call it (what we typically call "empathy") to be able to relate to understand them on an emotional level.
It's like if you have a leader and he/she doesn't anything about what you are doing, can't relate at all to actual things you need to do your job properly, that's an absence of 'empathy". The leader can't project themselves in your shoes and understand things from your perspective. But for a leader to be very empathetic, they need to not only be decent at understanding the basic human emotions and struggles but some degree of what each individual follower is doing and what they need and how they're struggling.
