The Art of Leadership emphasizes the interactive, seminar approach to learning. It encourages hands-on development of one’s personal leadership skills through real-world examples and interactive learning activities that bridge the gap between theory and practice. One of the important leadership skills is the ability to make decisions. He has to think and act fast. Taking too much time to think through and come up with a solution will cause missed opportunities. Good leaders are continually working and studying to improve their leadership skills; they are not resting on their laurels. Knowledge and skills contribute directly to the process of leadership, while the other attributes give the leader certain characteristics that make him or her unique. It is the followers, not the leader or someone else who determines if the leader is successful. If they do not trust or lack confidence in their leader, then they will be uninspired. To be successful you have to convince your followers, not yourself or your superiors, that you are worthy of being followed.
