"…an unfailingly kind leadership protocol seems like a solid approach for a volunteer organization.

This makes the final trait essential: in the face of disaster, you remain the calm and focused leader. Disaster is a strong word, but in a world where volunteers are doing work they are choosing to do rather than work they must do, unexpected situations are the norm.
