This week definition:
Leadership is a collection of essential personal skills that are to be learned in an ongoing basis; versatility is one of them.
Leadership helps a team to accomplish specific goals efficiently through the collaboration between individuals.
Leadership can also be choices of actions made consciously and unconsciously from one's personal values and beliefs, which can affect other people in positive ways as well as be inspirational.


Analysis of the differences in the definitions:

Whether leadership is positional or collaborative, one aspect of leadership that does not change to my opinion is other people are involved in the process that their importance is irrefutable. Therefore, I believe it is important that a leader acts in such a way that the surrounding people are able to respond positively such as by treating people equally and with respect. An example of such leader is Golomb who had successfully refrained himself from committing the Warden Harring error. The results were a group of customers who were satisfied with his customer service and the fulfillment of his leadership role as a salespeople as he managed to sell a lot of cars. (Gladwell,2005) Based on these considerations, I decided to modify my third definition to be more specific than the previous one.
