The are many aspects to being a strong leader. One is inspiring and motivating others in a particular direction. Leaders tend to be positive and upbeat. They don't let failure get them down and they keep their eyes on the future.
I've seen these traits in a lot of great leaders. The harder trait of leadership is the ability to make change and create movement from one place to another - business growth, a championship team, shipping a product.
This aspect of leadership requires thoughtfulness and strategy. It's the execution side of the equation, the side that reaches the goal line. It's about choosing the right people to join the pack to get from point A to point B. It's knowing how to get them there. It's about making a plan and setting the framework so that collectively the group wins.
A good leader can inspire. A great leader creates a winning team.
