Good leadership is about being recognized as a good leader.
1. Respect: exceptionally good at getting things done.
2. Genuine Interest: People know they count.
3. Understanding: ohhhhhhhhhh! hell yeah!
4. Helpfulness: Leaders offer assistance with no strings attached.
if you don't fit into the four categories mentioned above, your definitely a crappy leader or just some power hungry beast.

"In order to understand what another person is saying, you must assume that it is true, and try to imagine what it could be true of."
This comes from http://www.adrr.com/aa/new.htm
and is part of an excerpt of her "Language in Emergency Medicine: A Verbal Self-Defense Handbook". Elgin is a Ph.D. Ozark linguist who has written a series of books on "The Gentle Art of Verbal Self-Defense". Highly recommended.
