leadership is the ability to push others to a higher level of ability. Leaders know how to effectively communicate with those around them.
Definition for week 8 is the following, Leadership is the ability to push others to a higher level of ability. Leaders know when to step back and allow their followers to solve the issues that have arisen. My definition has changed as a result of the increased emphasis on VASE as well as the inclusion of getting on the balcony. Leaders need to be able realize when their intervention is needed, and when to simply let things take their natural course. Sometimes people need to fail in order to grow and learn.
