Who is a leader?  While a manager might try to minimize risks, a leader convinces their followers that a risk is worth taking.  A leader is someone who recognizes and celebrates accomplishments while using disappointments as learning opportunities.  It is someone who moves forward confidently, focusing on a vision

Wikipedia

Leadership, both as a research area and as a practical skill, encompasses the ability of an individual, group or organization to "lead", influence or guide other individuals, teams, or entire organizations. The word "leadership" often gets viewed as a contested term.

Academic environments define leadership as "a process of social influence in which a person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common and ethical task".

In other words, leadership can be defined as an influential power-relationship in which the power of one party (the "leader") promotes movement/change in others (the "followers").
