The definition according to Wikipedia is: Leadership is both a research area and a practical skill encompassing the ability of an individual or organization to lead or guide other individuals, teams, or entire organizations. Although there are certainly people who seem to be naturals at it and born with leadership traits – it is also very possible to learn to be an effective or even a great leader. Working alongside their teammates, strong leaders take the time to learn what unique value and skills they possess and create opportunities for them to utilize those skills in the best way possible.
