What do you think a leader is?

quotes about leadership, flying ducks in an arrow

A leader is anyone that sets the direction, and influences, supports and develops people so that they are willing to follow him or her and work together to achieve agreed-upon goals.

A leader doesn’t have to be a manager. The key characteristic of a leader is the influence. Someone in management positions with formal power has influence, while the other with moral beauty is respected and his or her words are followed. In either case, they all have influence over people, exercise leadership, and hence a leader.
