What is a leader?

A leader is someone who takes on the responsibility of another group/person and teaches them valuable lessons, as well as helps them to grow and learn. Leadership is more than simply leading, it is also teaching, helping, and assisting. To lead you must be aware that you are in a position of authority, and you must use your position to advance those around you. You must be humble, have a great sense of integrity, be aware of your position,  be self-disciplined, confident, and trustworthy, without the ending goal of personal gain.


Leadership is having a goal to move towards and taking action in order for the group to achieve it. Leadership is having compassion for others and empathy in order to help the community of people. A leader does all in their power to achieve this while working for the greater good and making the harder decisions.
