What is your Definition of Leadership?

I am going to steal Colin Powell’s definition because I think it gets down to foundation of what leadership is. “Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.”
