What is leadership ?
There is no definite or clear-cut definition of clearLeadership. In broad terms a true leader could be defined as the one who can inspire others to achieve success. Leadership is a complex process by which a person influences others to accomplish a mission, task, or objective and directs the organization in a way that makes it more cohesive and coherent. A person carries out this process by applying his/her leadership attributes (belief, values, ethics, character, knowledge, and skills). A Leader is one who has the capacity to look forward and back, to preside over endings and beginnings, sunsets and daybreak and question himself µWhat have I learned about leadership throughout my career that will serve me well into the future? What have we collectively learned about leadership that we can teach others so that they can benefit from our experiences ?
