  4. Leadership is made

Analysis of the differences in the definitions:

Quoting Lomas (2011), the author wrote,"He believed in listening to instinct and rarely lacked an opinion. He knew where he wanted to get to - and more often than not how to get there too", when describing about Steve Jobs, the man who was largely responsible for Apple Inc successful domination in the technological field. Besides that, Lomas also wrote,"Jobs structured and aligned Apple under the same principles he used when designing products - fashioning the company as an integrated whole, not a series of siloed functions. This structure was crucial to giving Apple the ability to both tightly focus and move quickly.". As a leader, Job made his actions to parallel with his beliefs,  helped units under Apple to become one strong team, and he inspired people with his management skills. His leadership, which fascinates me, is an example that supports both my second and third definitions of leadership.
