Defining Leadership: Trying to Understand

By Darnell E. Patton, GySgt/USMC

You can ask ten different people what their definition of leadership is and you will probably get ten different answers.  Leadership doesn’t have a specific definition.  By giving it a definition, you are putting restrictions and limitations on the word and the true value of leadership.  Leadership is something that is complicated to explain and understand.  It is formless; it doesn’t take on a particular shape or form, nor does it go in one particular direction. A great leader can adjust to any situation at any given time, under any circumstance, and still come out successful.
