The behavior of leaders and the development of good leaders is more important today than ever before. Decentralization has spread decision making responsibilities across all levels of the organization. Rapid change and greater uncertainty in the world means that the role of leaders and the challenges they face are more ambiguous. Michael Useem, University of Pennsylvania professor and author of several leadership books and articles, suggests that, “Leadership matters most when it is least clear what course should be followed.” However, many people believe that leadership is just a position, or they confuse it with management. There is a difference.

So, What is leadership? How do leaders lead, and why do followers follow?
