Who is a leader ? Leaders do not come from moon. They are just an ordinary person like you or me. Only thing that makes a difference is their ability to do extraordinary things in ordinary ways. A leader helps others do and become more than they ever thought possible.
Leadership is all about unlocking potential, it may be individual potential or that of a group, company, or an organization. In every area of life, good leadership gets things done. It is not about telling people what to do, but inspiring them to see what they are capable of, then, helping them get there.
Good leaders know themselves. Knowing oneself is necessary when faced with challenges or ethical choices, communicating with those who have different ideas, making decisions, and identifying sources of satisfaction. Good leaders are always willing to commit and take news responsibilities.
They always accept changes as they recognize the value of change. They know that everything is in motion, i.e continually changing. If they will not adapt to new changes their followers will forget them.
Anyone can become a good leader, just you need to have ability to think differently, group together the friends, relatives, followers, workers etc, take tough decisions in crunch situations, ready to show commitment etc.
