Leadership is an essential and important quality. The focus is on questions how to get your team fired up and willing to follow you. Leadership is a skill that can be learned, but doesn't mean the leader is standing back and telling others what to do . It is not belittling or demeaning others who don't do what you tell them to do. Leadership is a skill that must be improved with practice. As a leader you have to accept the task of leading. You have to keep your own position, to discuss with colleagues, to find solutions – accepted by both sides. Leading people means learning to work with people of different functional backgrounds, multiple types of organizations and conflicting groups to achieve your goals.
