From a whole week of Leadership and excellence module, it has got me thinking on what leadership really is? There are so many meaning for leadership, but the definition that best suits me is,
Leadership is a process of communicating creativity through an experience inspired by role models/examples to create openness, motivation, fairness and integrity. Also having an insight to recognize all situations, showing authority and interacting.
So if the leader tells to do something or enforced his or her veiw, this makes him/her a direct leader (An example would be Hitler). But if the leader does something that benefits the world and people learn from it and follow without being told to follow is known as an indirect leader (An example of this would be Mother Teresa). But the question that comes to my mind is Does the dominance of a person make them an effective leader?
