Leadership Perspectives
My thoughts on leadership; James Mallinger

Actions of a Great Leader

When I was asked if I was willing to write about leadership, my first thought was where do I start. Immediately what came to mind was much of the study material used both past and present for promotions. My next thought was everything I learned in courses I have taught and taken. Another thought was to google leadership and see what was on the web. The first definition of leadership I found online was “the art of motivating a group of people to act towards a common goal”. Another definition was “the action of leading a group of people or an organization”. Online, John Maxwell defined leadership as “one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way”.
