A leader remains true to my previous definitions. However, although a leader should be prepared and the "rock" everyone can rely on, a little fear is not a bad thing as long as it is handled professionally. Fear is a great driving force when used carefully and sparingly.

Last weeks entry: I still believe the last definition written remains true. However, I also believe that good leaders need a strong base of emotional and social intelligence in order to inspire those who work for them. You cannot be a good leader if you are ignorant to others basic emotional needs.
