What Is Leadership?

Leadership is a characteristic that's not readily defined, but you know it when you see it. Leadership is not as much about authority or expertise as it is the ability to influence those around you. Leaders are able to articulate an inspiring vision, set direction, and map out a plan to reach a desired goal. They are good communicators and cultivate trusting, authentic relationships.

Leaders are those who empower others.
— Bill Gates
