Leadership is the skill of guiding the efforts of others in the performance of some tasks in order to achieve a goal.
A leader may have higher skills than his subordinates , although it is not essential. He directs activities through discipline and encouragement and displays the values expected. Where practicable he will explain why some action is needed rather than simply use his authority to demand compliance.
- ... leadership is communicating to people their worth and potential so clearly that they come to see it in themselves. - Stephen R. Covey
