Mead Minutes: The many faces of leadership

Others would mandate to be a leader you must have the ability to generate a vision coupled with the ability to have people buy into the vision and act. Leaders see what “could be and should be” before others. Leaders anticipate problems. Leaders do not accept the status quo as perfect or even acceptable.
