Why leadership means something different to each one

Today, after the presentations of the definitions of leadership I really understood the meaning of the followingleadership.jpg quote:

"There are almost as many different definitions of leadership as there are persons who have attempted to define the concept" (Bass, 1981).

Since this course is comprised of people from all walks of life who have different background, understanding, thinking and so on, it is completely logical that leadership is perceived differently. As there is no right or wrong answer, everyone can interpret it as he or she wants.

However, my personal point of view is that only after we have a lot of experience we can really understand what leadership means to us. For now we need to stay open minded and learn the most we can. But when we are going to be in a leading position, then I'm sure that we will really understand the true meaning of leadership and thus we will create our leadership brand (i.e. how people perceive us as leaders and what we want to be known for).
