Leadership is defined by Merriam-Webster (n.d.) as a “capacity to lead”. This concise yet inexact definition demonstrates an inherent debate of what exactly leadership is, moreover the concept of what makes someone a good or bad leader. People’s interpretations of what makes someone a leader varies from person to person based on their own philosophical outlook. My philosophy on leadership leans heavily on Jocko Willink’s and Leif Babin’s book Extreme Ownership. Quoting Willink & Babin (2015), “… leadership requires finding the equilibrium in the dichotomy of many seemingly contradictory qualities between one extreme and another” (p. 274). Some of the contradictory qualities in the book I agree with the most include taking ownership while empowering subordinates, being attentive to details but not being obsessed, and being aggressive but not overbearing.

When leaders are leading a team, they have roles and responsibilities that they must take on to be an effective leader. In the article “A Tribute To Warren Bennis, A Leader Of Leaders” by Steve Denning (2014), Bennis stated the interpretation of a leader as someone who not only made “people feel that they’re at the very heart of things, not at the periphery,” but actually put forward, and implemented, a vision of leadership in which that was a reality, not just a feeling (p.1, Denning, 2014). I agree with Bennis on his views on a role of leader. My philosophy on the roles of leaders is the same as Bennis. I believe that the people or followers come first. I believe effectively communicating with the followers is key. It is the leader’s role
