What is leadership?

People are called leaders because they have a lot of people reporting to them or they have status that indicates they are special in some way.

But what is a leader, really? And who can apply to be one?

A leader is a person who has a higher calling than himself or herself. That calling can be a vision or image that is in their mind of how things should be--whether it be in a business setting, a church or political office. And that person must be determined to see that vision become reality by engaging others to act in concert to achieve it.

We hear of great leaders during times of war or unrest, but there are plenty of opportunities for anyone in any position to lead. Apply within.
