Leadership - yet another commonly used  but poorly understood concept despite the vast amount of literature available on this topic. The one definition that I follow is what Partha Ghosh , visiting lecturer at MIT taught me - True leaders are the servants of a cause. There cannot be true leadership without a worthwhile cause. Once you dedicate yourself to a worthwhile cause , leadership pivots around "enlightenment" , not "entitlement" . True leaders are often silent - they bring about transformation without much fanfare or hoopla .
