20 20 Leadership is influencing people – by providing purpose, direction and motivation – while operating to accomplish the mission and improving the organization. Leadership is the process of followers and the leader engaging in reciprocal influence to achieve a shared purpose. Leadership is all about getting people to work together to make things happen that might not otherwise occur or prevent things from happening that ordinarily would take place. Leaders are not born. They are made. They are made just like anything else... through hard work. That's the price we have to pay to achieve that goal or any goal. - Vince Lombardi Leadership: The art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it. - Dwight D.
