A Leader Is. . .

Quoted in Focal Point, summer, 1997, p. 19

Peter Drucker, perhaps the most noted authority on leadership in the 20th century, says:

A leader is one who has followers. An effective leader is not someone who is loved or admired. He is someone whose followers do the right thing. Popularity is not leadership, results are. Leaders are highly visible. They, therefore, set examples. Leadership is not rank or privileges, titles or money. Leadership is responsibility.
