How I define leadership is the ability to foster the agency of others for the sake of achieving a common goal.
I see a leader as me, as you, as anyone, as everyone. We all have within us the capacity to help others. When I envision a leader I see someone using their skill-set to help others and together achieving great things. A leader is someone who empowers, uplifts, and fosters the agency of others, to do and achieve their endeavors. People so often see leading as a means to assert authority for the purpose of accomplishing their own goals. I see leading or being a leader as or should be about helping others achieve their own goals. Using your individual power and abilities to assist and boost others ability to accomplish a shared goal, is what leadership is .
