What makes political honchos, school principals and influential people what they are? Where is the source of the leadership qualities someone is said to have? What is leadership anyways?

Many of our political hoardings (SOME of them illegally put up) have pictures of the leaders pointing in a direction. Leadership is not that. A good leader does not just show you the direction, he/she takes you there. In other words, a good leader more importantly comes with you where he wants you to go.

A good manager will never force a subordinate to "just do it". A good manager will encourage him and have the "let's do it attitude".

Leadership or managerial skills of any sort, in my opinion, aren't 'push-push' techniques. A good leader doesn't push. He pulls.
