1. What does leadership mean to you? Give your view in 50 - 75 words
To me, leadership is the act of leading people toward a common goal by inspiring,
encouraging, and empowering people to achieve their best. This involves defining an
inspiring vision, promoting cooperation, displaying integrity, empathy, and decisiveness. True
leadership is not only about sailing the ship but also allowing the crew to manage the details
within a general direction of march.

In fact, management and leadership are different but complementary. This involves processes
of planning, organization, and control which are concerned with managing of process and
resources towards achieving desired objectives in an efficient way. It's task-
oriented. Conversely, leadership is people-oriented and future-focused. It's about instilling in
others the need for teamwork. Success in many effective organizations requires mixes of
management and leadership skills.
