You can study, read, talk about and dance around leadership for as long as you like. Ultimately, I believe it boils down to a few essentials:

1. Vision: Do you have a vision of the future and can you communicate it clearly and persuasively to the right people?
2. Followers: Are the right people aligning with the visioin and inviting more to join?
3. Love: Do you live(demonstrate) authentic concern about the well-being of those who would follow you, even above your own well-being?

What are your thoughts on leadership?
