A leader must be able to inspire people. If people need constant supervision, that's not leadership. Leadership is about being able to take your people in a direction and to a destination that they themselves could not have imagined possible. If it was something that they could have imagined, they do not need a leader around. For this to happen, a leader must be able to see beyond the obvious which others can't see. To become a true leader, one must have a profound sense of insight and need to work upon themselves to enhance their perception skills.
