Leaders lead, plain and simple. This happens in a variety of ways and is often visible to the eye. Yet, there are other qualities of leaders that happen without a word spoken.
Let me try to explain. I call it "a leader's presence."
Some leaders can walk into a room and not say a word, yet their presence is felt by everyone that is there. People watch them from a distance and learn from them. The mere fact that they are in the room can bring encouragement, challenge, or approval to others. I can think of a few people who carry this presence.
Any thoughts out there on this one?
