This Week's Definition:
Leadership is having influence over a group, who believe in similar goals and philosophies as the leader. Leadership begins with one's core values and priorities in life, which can help direct their decisions and behavior.

Difference:
This week, I changed the word "Control" to "Influence." I did this because leaders should not necessarily "control" anybody. Nobody enjoys being "controlled." Good leaders have a way about them that make others want to either be like them, want to work with them, or inspire them. Also, influence isn't such a powering word. The word control can provoke fear to some people.
