Defining leadership

… leadership involves a person, group, or organization who shows the way in an area of life – whether in the short- or long-term – and in doing so both influences and empowers enough people to bring about change in that area. Such leadership may be good or bad depending on the leader’s style and the content of what the leader is advocating. From a Christian point of view, it is only when the direction and the method are in line with God’s purposes, character and ways of operating that godly leadership takes place.
