Leadership is the ability to perceive a vision and then influence, empower, and mobilize others to achieve that vision.
I love this definition because it recognizes that we have to be given a vision, and then our goal as a leader is to help others accomplish that vision. Leadership doesn’t begin with us and it doesn’t end with us. We are called to use our leadership to serve others and help them succeed. We will either lead as a tyrant, weilding our power to coerce others to do what we want them to do, or we will lead as a servant, showing others the way by sacrificing for them.
What kind of leader will you be?
