Leaders are the people who show the way because they have a clear sense of where they're going. They walk into the future with courage, challenging others to follow them. They are often misunderstood and sometimes bitterly opposed. They stay focused on the things that matter, but they never forget that people matter more than things. They fight tenaciously for what they believe in because they believe in a cause bigger than themselves. This cause consumes them and becomes the rallying point for everyone who follows them.
