What Makes A Leader? | Dr. Travis Bradberry | LinkedIn | The Edge

Leadership is a process of social influence which maximizes the efforts of others toward the achievement of a greater good.

Notice the key elements of this definition:

Leadership stems from social influence, not authority or power.

Leadership requires others, and that implies they don’t need to be “direct reports.”

No mention of personality traits, attributes, or even a title; there are many styles, many paths to effective leadership.

It includes a greater good, not influence with no intended outcome.
