Leadership Defined

The definitions of leadership are infinite. If you were to ask 100 people their perspective on leadership you would get an equal amount of responses. We  may have different views on the subject. However, we share a common vision in that leadership must be grounded in ideals, philosophies, values, and principles. Many before us have defined what it takes to lead others. Many after us will continue the effort because it’s that important.
