what makes a great leader?

i watched the apprentice last night in which pamela was chosen as the leader of the women's team. she immediately started barking orders and treating her team like a bunch idiots. this obviously didn't go well with the rest of the women. funny thing is that she acted very a la trump who in my opinion is a terrible leader.

one of the characteristics of a great leader is that they are admired. people aspire to be like david neelman and steve jobs....they lead by rallying and motivating their troops. jetblue and apple employees tend to be fanatics of their leaders. these leaders didn't get there by barking orders or by exalting themselves. they lead by nurturing a very innate human attribute - aspiration.

pamela fired
