There are many perspectives on what leadership means and even more on the characteristics that leaders should have. I realized over time that being a leader isn't having a certain title; rather, being a leader is recognizing the potential in others and helping them, as much as possible, to realize it. For me, leadership development is learning to share experiences to ultimately plant a seed of enthusiasm in others.
