Leadership is Just One Thing

Lisa Haneberg is a writer and management trainer who has an interesting blog called Management Craft

One of her recent posts is about Leadership. She states it is "just one thing", and then defines that through a series of steps as:
So the one thing (leadership) is proactivity with a tinge of charisma that feels compelling, is at the service of others, demonstrates ownership of results, targeted to provide the greatest benefit, and that is delivered by someone we trust.
I like that encapsulation of leadership. It's neat and seems accurate without being generic, but is multi-layered and complex enough to really capture the essence of leadership.
