  • Is it measured in successes?

    Is it weighed in their influence over others?

    Are leaders all the same?

    WHAT DEFINES A LEADER?

  • If you look back at all the

    notable leaders of the past,

    you will notice that there isnt

    a set of characteristics that

    they all share in common.

    A LEADER IS UNDEFINABLE

  • Here are the most

    common

    misconceptions of

    what it takes to be a

    great leader.

    best decision regardless of if it

    affects their popularity.

    LEADER = POPULAR

  • Charisma, charm, and confidence

    all help with leadership.

    However, they do not guarantee

    a leader will be successful or

    great. What matters more for a

    great leader is understanding,

    zeal, and stability.
