However trying to define what leadership actually is can be really hard. Here is my quicjk checklist for what constitutes leadership.
- Strategy. Leaders have an uncanmny knack for being able to see ahead and to be able to devise answers and saolutions to various situations. Managers deal with situations as they happen or after the fact. Leaders think and plan ahead.
- People. Leaders deal with people. People follow leaders. It is amusing how many people assume they are a leader because they hold a position. Real leadership occurs when people listen to you and do what you ask, go where you go and just plain get on with it.
