What is leadership?

At the end of the day, leadership is influence.

If you can get someone to see the world from your perspective, and then take action, that’s leadership.

Good leadership though is much more specific. Good leadership is using your influence to improve the quality of life for other people.

If you have influence you can use it for any number of things: making money, creating joy, manipulation, being lazy, pissing people off, opening a restaurant, inspiring people to volunteer, etc.

Personally, I don’t think there is a point in leading, unless you’re going to improve the quality of life on earth. That’s the difference between a leader and a good leader.
