What is Leadership?

What is leadership? Each of us believe we have a good idea about what it means to be a good leader through our direct experience at our job or in volunteering. However when it comes to defining the concept, the picture is not so clear. Leadership is critical to every organization. Workers and volunteers need someone to look to, learn from and thrive. Every leader has their own style and strategy. Leadership styles and methods vary because of outside influences and personal challenges.

Let’s consider the common elements of a leader.

  1. They have a vision for the company or organization.
  2. They motivate staff to achieve objectives towards the company vision they have set forth.
  3. They support staff with tools, advice and continuing education.
  4. They can identify with customers and members of their team.
  5. They build teams to work on common goals of the company.
  6. They take risks on opportunities to further the company.

A leader is the one in charge, the person who convinces other people to follow. A great leader inspires confidence in other people and moves them to action.
