What do leaders have in common? It turns out to be not very much. There are male leaders and female leaders; tall and short leaders; loud and quiet leaders; extroverted and introverted leaders; rationalist, idealist, artisan, and shepherd leaders; leaders with big, fancy titles at big corporations and leaders with no titles who do volunteer work; famous leaders known by millions and family leaders known by very few people. I could keep going with the differences between leaders, but I think you get the idea. So what do they have in common? What is the basic prerequisite of leadership?


Let us start with a definition. Definitions help define what is meant within a word and what is outside of that word. I define leadership as "influencing how other people think so they make decisions that improve results in a sustainable way."

Based on that definition, just having a title does not make a person a leader, regardless of how big the title. This is a common fallacy to think that a person is automatically a leader because of his or her title.
