Leadership has been described as "The process of social influence in which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task."
Definitions more inclusive of followers have also emerged:
Alan Keith stated that, "Leadership is ultimately about creating a way for people to contribute to making something extraordinary happen..
Tom Demarco says that leadership needs to be distinguished from posturing.
