Developing Future Leaders book
Leadership and leaders must be deﬁned before they can be rationally discussed. A leader is someone you follow because you want to, not because you have to. Leadership is convincing someone to do what you want them to do and convincing someone not to do that which you do not want them to do. Leadership is an experientially acquired skill. It is not abstract, like science or mathematics, and thus cannot be taught in the classic manner. Much like the effect of oxygen on combustion, teaching in the classic manner of expounding abstraction can support and enhance the development process for leaders by furthering their understanding of experience.
