True leader is enable to lead him/herself well.
Peou Lun, Cambodia

Leadership creates action out of intention.
Bob C., Pig's Knuckle, AR

"Great Leaders make followers into Great Leaders."
Elmer J Carreño , Jersey city, N.J

In order to lead, others must follow. I won't follow anyone who takes credit, but not blame.
Diane, USA

Anyone can be placed in a Leadership position... but that doesn't necessarily make them the Leader. True Leaders are granted Leadership by those that TRUST them.
Gerald T., UpState NY

Leadership is influencing others toward a better future.
Bruce Willingham, Warner Robins Ga

A leader is not one who jumps at a chance to be first, a Leader is one who jumps at the chance to give everything in their power to guide others through problems whether those same problems be thick or thin.
Logan, Kent, Washington

True leaders are not those who strive to be first, but are first to strive and give it their all to envision the power of the team. By the strength of the leader, the power of the pack is unleashed.
Stephen P., Syracuse

I have come to learn that those in leadership positions are not necessarily leaders and those in subordinate positions are not necessarily subordinate; but it is those who can envision, construct and model behaviors that change the world who are real leaders.
Ken R., Hampstead

Leadership is like a battlefield. You have to fight for it.
Fir :), Pennsylvania

Leadership is "Guiding Intent with Integrity"
E Net Arch, San Francisco

A good leader respects those with whom s/he works, fosters participation, growth, loves the people and genuinely shows respect for the people they lead. A leader listens to advice of others and stands by decisions. But when wrong, readily admits mistakes, learns and acknowledges errors. And good leader stands faithful to core values that should be followed without exception regardless of the outcome.
Dave H, SC

True leadership starts from the bottom, learns the structure, motivates others, and leads by example.
Darlene, Cleveland, Ohio

Real leadership manifests itself in the person who motivates a follower to do something s/he would not ever do in the absence of the leader, and GREAT leadership moves that follower to do virtually anything the leader asks, to the extent that self becomes secondary to both the follower AND the leader. And, when acting in that context, combining those actions with a noble and ethical objective, civilization moves forward and all of humanity benefits from a reinforcement of decency.
Steve (Roto) T., Bristow, VA

Leadership is when ordinary people achieve extraordinary results.
Hunter C., Bonita Springs, FL
