The concept of leadership was once reserved for politics and the military. But as the authors write, "Leadership is now multifaceted rather than simply summed up in the dread words 'command and control.' Leadership is about feelings. Leadership is about emotions. Leadership is about those who follow. Leadership is about the people touched by the actions of leaders."
