The Leadership Challenge is considered to be the definitive field guide on leadership.
"The Leadership Challenge is considered to be the definitive field guide on leadership. There are over a million copies in print, in 15 languages. The authors have devised the following five practices of exemplary leadership:
Model the Way. Leaders must model the behavior they expect from others.
Inspire a Shared Vision. The leader’s dream or vision is the force that invents the future. It is the employees’ belief in and enthusiasm for the vision that motivates them to give their best.
Challenge the Process. Leaders do not accept the status quo. They search for opportunities to innovate, grow, and improve processes.
Enable Others to Act. Effective leaders make people feel confident, strong, and capable of taking action.
Encourage the Heart. Through good times and bad, leaders encourage the heart of their employees to carry on and do their best."

In your post, be sure to address these subquestions:
1) What kind of power does the person have and why?
2) What theory of leadership best explains his or her behavior?
3) What leadership style does the person have and why?
4) What makes you want to listen and follow this individual?
