My  CommenTs  : 

Leadership is not a position, title, or privilege, instead, it is a responsibility and a process-an observable, understandable, learnable set of skills and practices available to everyone, anywhere in the organization. Leadership is the indirect ability to influence people by setting an inspiring example-not just any sort of example but one that inspires people to pursue goals that benefit the organization. It is indirect because true leaders don't have to try to influence intentionally. Leadership involves creating a vision of the future, devising a strategy for achieving that vision, and communicating the vision, so that everyone understands and believes in it. Leadership also entails building a culture that will inspire and motivate people to overcome obstacles. In this way, leadership gets results and brings about change.
A successful leaders possess greater drive, that is, achievement, sense of responsibility, ambition, energy, tenacity, and initiative. They also are persons with high  motivation,  honesty and integrity, extraversion, high self-confidence, persuasive, diplomatic, socially skilled, conceptual ability or creative thinking and business knowledge. This does not mean, however, that just because a person has these characteristics that he or she will be a successful leader or even be a leader. The evidence shows that leaders tend to differ from nonleaders with respect to the traits listed. Also, the evidence does not show that leaders are born. They are much more than a combination of traits. To succeed, leaders do not have to be intellectual geniuses, but they do have to have certain capabilities.
 Human skills are related to interpersonal relationships and include managing individual performance, motivating and disciplining subordinates, monitoring, performance, providing feedback, and improving communications. These ski1ls require the ability to understand the feelings, attitudes, and motives of others and the ability to communicate clearly and persuasively. Skills such as analytical ability, logical thinking, and inductive and deductive reasoning are considered conceptual. A certain set of traits and skills, however, does not guarantee successful leadership. Each situation may have particular requirements that make one trait or skill more important in one situation than in another. For example, many people are influenced by the physical height of a person, which is the taller the person is, especially for a man, the more potential the person seems to have, to be selected as a manager. Possession of the qualities like this however doesn’t guarantee for becoming an excellent leader. The conclusion is, it takes more than certain traits to be a successful leader, as well as the behaviour.
