i consider leadership, like many artforms, as an art. “but, its not painting!?” ”leadership is not like carving ivory, or working with wood!?” very true. good, effective leadership takes theory and practice to get people to follow without question or complaint.
there are good leaders, there are great leaders (think rudolph guiliani), and there are those that are in a better place to follow.
there are good painters, there are great painters (think michaelangelo), and there are those that are in a better place to peruse in a museum.
effective leadership takes the know-how to lead others. effective leadership takes practice to lead others. effective leadership takes a person to consider leadership as an artform.
