      A good leader is someone who has influence and can teach people.

      A good leader moves someone from where they are to where they are capable of being.

      Now, I would say a good leader takes you from where you were to where you were not.

      Before this lesson, I would probably have said that “A good leader leads a group of people to be productive and successful in their profession.”

      Before this lesson I taught leadership is more about getting higher in position and title and what they must do. the lesson reminded me that leadership is not about title but rather about action of being and doing. that as a leader the goal is to make the team better individually and as a group while achieving and getting to the desired goal.

      I would have said a leader has good management skills who also lead by example. I now include that goal setting and delegating to reach new heights and accomplishments are also necessary.

      A good leader gets in the trenches with those that he or she leads and demonstrates initiative to do the work that others are often unwilling to do.

      A good leader empowers his/her followers. A good leader listens to the followers and makes informed decisions. After listening, I would add a good leader takes you somewhere. Takes you to the next level, takes you on a journey of a better way.

      My husband is a really good leader so I would’ve described him. He serves well and is always able to cast a vision to his team of where they are going.

      I would have said a good leader humbly, compassionately, and effectively takes care of people under him or her. I would say all those things will adding he/she serves, and takes people from where they are not to where they need to be/are going.

      Before: A good leader must listen to who they are leading to gauge personalities and talents.
      After: A good leader must take action to lead not only by determining “who”, but also Where, How and What the end result look like. Not every leader is equipped to lead every experience or endeavor.

      I think the great leader is a guy that leads by example and knows how to communicate.

      I’m learning a good leader leads by example and sometimes let’s the people below them take over situations.

      Serves, motivates, cares for. I wouldn’t change it all that much, though like the lesson discussed, different situations will require different tactics.

      A good leader serves, and knows where she is leading.

      I would have described a good leader as a manager. After going through the lesson I see the importance of actively moving , being adaptable, seeing the needs and changing them to continue the progression.

      I would’ve described a good leader as someone who could turn around and see that people are actually following them.. Now I would add to that and say they also are clearly heading towards a place they haven’t been before in growth.

      A good leader is someone who have after they led someone, that someone us ready to lead others to that very same place. A good leader does not just gain followers, but develops more good leaders.

      I thought a good leader was someone who spoke eloquently and people listened but now I know a good leader serves others.

      A leader helps someone along to reach a goal and leads through demonstration themselves. Now I’d say a good leader leads you where you ain’t.

      Taking someone from one place to another place. Now, guiding someone from one place to a better place.

      Beforehand, I would have described leadership as someone that merely drives the vehicle of an organization or group. Now, it’s more evident that leadership is far greater, looking into areas of motivation and modeling. A leader is someone that comes alongside and authentically lives out the ways in which they are striving to have reflected in there organization or group.

      My Bachelor’s Degree is in Leadership and Management. I love to study and understand leadership thought and practices. I am a big advocate on Servant Leadership, simply meaning elevating and putting others first. A great leader equips and empower others to get their most potential.

      I would have described a good leader as someone who is visionary, committed, and follows through. (A good representation of Christ) Now, I would describe a leader as that, but would add that they bring people along for the journey of getting better and have a servant’s mind in their leading of others (an even better representation of Christ).

      A leader serves others to help them accomplish what God has for them. It is similar in that we are leading based on the situation and helping people move in their journey.

      Before this lesson I would say a good leader is someone who gets the group to achieve the goal successfully. Now I feel a good a leader is someone who can get the team to buy into the vision!

      I would have described leadership as influence. I think the distinction that is made about leadership being a verb is a good one. Its not management. We actually take people somewhere.

      I would have described a good leader as someone who takes people toward a goal, while working along side them. Now I would say the same, but add that once the goal is reached that those that were being led desire to be under the same leadership again

      Before I think Good leader know where they are going. They need to lead themselves well before they lead other. They require great characters such as love, passion, knowledge in what they are leading. After first lesson It’s good leader lead to better place than they were before.

      Good leader know where they are going, who they are taking, how they are getting?
      Good leader lead, lead is an action that need more than thinking sitting around but do something too.

      Before this lesson I would have thought a leader was the one making sure I was doing what I was supposed to be doing where I am. Now I know this management not leadership. A good leader would be someone taking me to a new and better place.

      Before this lesson, I would describe a good leader as someone who motivates /teaches people how to do and be better than they once did.
      A good leader takes people where they haven’t been, and wouldn’t know how to get there without the guidance of said leader.

      Servant leadership, leads by example and shows what needs to be done.

      Now, I would add that good leaders take you to a better place and make you a better person when you get there.
