Introduction to Part One Key Points

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

§  Part 2 Followers and followership

§  Part 3 Leaders and followers in transition

§  Part 4 Contemporary perspectives
