Leadership is a remarkable attribute; it is one that has been witnessed in the work of renowned politicians, policy makers, businesspeople, athletes, scholars, members of the clergy and nobelists, among many others. There have been so many women and men who have achieved great results, regardless of the nature of their strategic objectives and goals. Granted, not all have had the best of intentions, and their actions may have been somewhat disappointing and even straight-out unethical; however, their success ultimately lies in their followers and achievement of effective outcomes. Their legacy is, in fact, the continuous successes as leaders despite potential contradicting points of view.
