This week I learned that leadership is working together. Yes, this defenition is simple but in all honestly, I believe you should have the majority vote in most instances but I ALSO understand that in some instances an experts or authorities opinion matters most. This raises an interesting question when battling between controversies and concerns. Who gives the final say? Leadership comes in many forms and is very depending on the situation you are in. Work together and understand that sometimes someone specific has to take the reins and you can accomplish/get through anything.

As I continue to build my view on leadership, I find that a worldwide perspective is important. If you see different views on how to train and guide people you have a much better understanding of how people function and interact with one another. Leadership means taking a group of diverse people and helping them relate and work together. I find a more "worldy" view can help you be a great leader in this sense.
This week in leadership I found out that many times its about taking a step back and observing "from the balcony." This term means looking at the people around you and the situation you are in and looking from afar and seeing all perspectives. This is very important in order to make a decision that works best for everyone in the group. When leading you need to be able to step back and look at the big picture.
