Why Should one be a Leader?

After studying some of the threads I somewhat miss the discussion "Why are we leaders?" Ownership leaders are of course obvious. Is it the role as manager or is it the own personal development that is the driving factor for entering the leader role, or is it something else? Does the reason has anything to do with the results?

The Leadership Challenge

There is no one route for a leader. Their background's will vary and so do the circumstances. The nature of the organization, its culture, the situation (or issue), or the people involved will all dictate when and where a person will be a good leader. I Kouzes and Posner in their book, 'The Leadership Challenge, 4th Edition' (2007, 4th edition) describe how to become a better leader.

Reasons for Being a Leader

Leadership is a way of life. Leadership starts at home, in our family circle through different aspects in life. I do not want to say that leadership is innate, but it is a process that must be learned and well understood. Remember that leadership can only be possible through interactions. Find your followers/your audience and know how to treat them and your way to leadership is open.
