Leadership is a fascinating subject. We do research on leadership and find that it is difficult to define who is a leader. And yet we are able to recognize them.

The attraction that leaders exert on others, their charisma, the halo that surrounds them, their power of communication and conviction, their vision of the future differentiates them from others. Angela Merkel has been praised for her leadership in the European Union, receiving several honors from other leaders in Europe and beyond.

If we look at the biographies of leaders throughout history, we can see how they have grown and evolved to become leaders. They have been building and evolving, improving, until they have successfully assumed responsibilities.

What factors influence the construction of a leader? What have been decisive? What is it that has marked the way for you?
