Leadership is an important component of career success. Peter Drucker has this to say about what makes a leader:

*  Leaders start projects by asking, "What has to be done?" instead of "What do I need?"

*  Leaders next ask, "What do I have to do to make a real contribution?" The answer best suits the leader's strengths and the needs of the project.

* Leaders continuously ask, "What are my organization's purposes and objectives?" and "What qualifies as acceptable performance and adds to the bottom line?"

*  Leaders don't want clones of themselves as employees [or team mates]. They never ask, "Do I like or dislike this employee?" But, they won't tolerate poor performance.

*  Leaders aren't threatened by others who have strengths they lack.
