A Leader is Someone Who Has Followers...
Javier Elenes, Business Consultant, Mexico

A key issue that is sometimes overlooked is that a leader is a leader when, and only when (s)he has followers. These followers will follow the leader if:
1. The followers think that the leader wants there well-being (compare servant leadership);
2. The followers think that the leader is capable;
3. The leader communicates a strategic vision as something that it is worth to pursue (as in: "We are building a new country" or "You can be too first new world citizen" rather then "We need to increase productivity by 17% or the quality of your products by 20% to reach an international cost and quality level".... Register
