Leadership is defined as the process of influencing people by providing purpose, direction, and motivation to accomplish the mission/job and improve the organization. In order to do this, you must understand what a leader must Be, Know, and Do: The Leadership Requirements. The ability to build influence and trust with individuals and organizations hinges on the understanding and application of the leadership requirements. They are the same requirements for everyone in the organization regardless of the level of leadership, mission, or assignment and include what a leader is (Attributes) and what a leader does (Competencies).
