Organizational unity is an ideal worth striving for, whether concerning purpose, plans or vision. Being able to solidify such unified thought requires certain aspects of leadership, including modeling and enlisting. Modeling manifests itself in example and enlisting creates a corporate culture which gets followers on-board with specific plans and models.
Leadership is not reducible to telling others what to do and expecting those things to happen, but good leadership manifests in four dimensions: leading self, leading others, leading change, and leading an organization. A better understanding of those areas can help foster the ability to lead well, not only within the context of business but within any field where leadership is needed.
