What is leadership?

Q: My question for you: If you had to write a definition of leadership what would it be?

A: Leadership is Influencing people to take action.  In the workplace, leadership is the art of getting work done through other people.  Leadership can be widely distributed within an organization – most everyone leads at some time or other, if not all the time.  And it’s highly situational: anyone might step forward to lead, given the right circumstances.
