the strength of character

looking at some of the definitions, analysis and explanation of leadership, it is clear that a single definition cannot satisfactorily explain what leadership, leading or being a leader is. i believe that different characteristics such as influencing, giving directions,ability to manipulate, having a shared goal are necessary but there are two characteeristics of leadership that strikes me the most -' strength of character and unwavering determination'.

also during the class session when we were listing down the learning points of the lifeboat exercise, this was one of the points that was listed "if you don't fit a sterotype, it is more difficult to establish yourself".And that got me thinking if Rogers or Brett or Sue or any of the people we choose as leaders were physically challenged or didn't meet up to our "sterotyped" notion, would we have choosen them despite the fact that they had all the necessary characteristics or attributes of being the most suitable leader or deputy?
