    The first thing that come to mind in regards to what makes a leader, the leader, is the followers.  Hmm, yes ultimately I would say that is the real answer.  The followers imitate to the best of their ability what the leader does.  That is why... read more

    Leadership is about getting people to *want* to follow you, not to drag people along with your way of thinking. It requires patience and understanding from the "leader."

    I think this is an excellent question due to the added dimension of the "servanthood". A choice is offered here between leading and servanthood, but I would suggest that both are critical elements of leadership.

    On one hand a leader "leads" by example and through clarifying vision for the organization. He or she is able to see far reaching opportuniites for the organization and direct its growth. Combining this visionary ability with a commitment to living by example the values that the organization is to be guided by is a large part of leadership.

    In addition, though, a leader is in a way serving his or her employees through creating opportunities for them to maintain and enhance their employment. And a leader serves his or her people well by helping them fulfill their potential. In a way, an inspirational leader models servitude, demonstrating that caring for other people's interests helps everyone in the long run. A great leader is able to set his or her ego aside for the benefit of others.

    Interesting question.

    Leadership is the ability to inspire others to do the very best they can to achieve the stated aims of the leader, although those aims will not feel remote to those working so hard to achieve them, they'll feel like their own.

    Don't just read the easy stuff. You may be entertained by it, but you will never grow from it....

    Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.

    Integrity is the most valuable and respected quality of leadership. Always keep your word.

    Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily, even if you had no title or position.
