    Hi Dean
    Leadership- “The relationship between those who choose to lead and those who choose to follow”- this apparently came from the Industrial Society and is IMHO the best and most comprehensive definition of a notoriously slippery subject.

    I hope this helps

  2. Leadership, Management, Coaching and Mentoring
    These words are often interchanged and often over defined. I have simple views of what each of these mean.

    Leadership – Leading, deciding the path to take, setting the strategy for others to follow and to work out how to achieve the goals of the strategy. At times, everyone demonstrates leadership.

    Management – Managing a process, a business or people. Understanding what the goals are and enabling resources (people and process) to achieve those goals.

    Coaching – helping an individual or a team access their own resources that will help them move in a direction that they decide. Coaches are not necessarily experts in a business field such as marketing or sales but they are experts in helping others use their individual resources and talents.

    Mentoring – A mentor is an expert in a field or discipline that can give specific advice, direction and input. Their area of expertise could be broad or focused.
