o Leadership lacks a clear definition. Senior military officers and academics hold various perspectives. Some view leadership from the aspect of art, others science; some see it as an amalgam of both. There are also various opinions leadership is taught or learned.
o Despite the lack of definition, people recognize good leadership when they see it. Good leadership mobilizes constituents toward shared objectives and generally appreciates the value of each participant.
o Personalities and situations contribute to what defines a person as a leader; there's no consistent pattern that defines a leader under this context.
o Four-part book:
§ Part 1 Leaders and leadership
