What is leadership?

Leadership. Can you explain this great responsibility in one or two sentences?

 
Eight individuals recently honored by the Partnership for Public Service as Service to America 2011 winners were asked to share their thoughts on leadership with the Washington Post. Hear what Alfonso Batres, Diane Braunstein, C. Norman Coleman, James Michael Duncan, William A. Gahl, W. Todd Grams, Charles Heurich and Paul Hsieh had to say by watching the video.

Collectively, they agree that leadership has a lot to do with creating an environment that will help people be successful by encouraging them to develop their skills and work together towards he common good.

What do you think? Is that leadership in one sentence? Please share your thoughts in the comment section. Go.
