Leadership is really a question of influence. In the past, leadership was based on power or position. Today leadership is based on choice. In other words, leaders used to get to pick their followers and tell them what to do. Today followers pick their leaders based on whom they trust and whom they want to be like.

Leadership can also be a question of innovation or independent thinking. History is replete with "leaders" who only influenced others posthumously. But were they leaders while they yet lived? I think they were.
