Courage.

Leadership requires courage. We can teach people the principles of leadership but without courage those people will never be followed, admired, or listened to. I am not defining courage as running into a machine gun but applying it to the day to day decision making that occurs for a leader. Difficult decisions are made daily. These decisions need to be based on absolute integrity and are often times difficult. This requires courage.
