Is the focus of a leader on what they are doing or what they are trying to get other people to do? I think it is more the former if we are talking true valuable leadership. When we lead it is more about what we want to achieve and as long as what we want to achieve isn’t caught up with ego and is about making a better reality for our community then true leadership will follow.

We need to be able to combine an external motivation for others with a clear understanding of our internal abilities, then true leadership can follow.  If we start to let what we want others to accomplish, then less valuable things will happen.
