Definitions of Leader A person or thing that leads. A guiding or directing head, as of an army, movement, or political group. One that leads or guides. One who is in charge or in command of others. One who heads a political party or organization. One who has influence or power, especially of a political nature. A person who rules or guides or inspires others A person who is in front or goes first A person who is the head of, organizes or is in charge (of something) The head …of any body… as of a tribe, clan, or family; a person in authority who directs the work of others…

The best test, and difficult to administer, is: Do those served grow as persons? Do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants? Will they benefit or at least not be further deprived?"

Examples of Balance Great Enough to be Without Pride Team gets the credit, you get the blame Compassionate Enough to Discipline Must not be soft – set high expectations and follow through Right Enough to Say, “I’m Wrong” Leaders make mistakes too, admit you are human Wise Enough to Admit You Don’t Know Find out quickly, but do not mislead Busy Enough to Listen Beware the busy manager – they do not lead Paradoxes are not easy to balance.
