What is your definition of leadership and how do you make an impact through your leadership qualities?

I think leadership comes from integrity, something that you do and what you ask others to do. I think these are non- obvious way to lead just by providing a good example as a parent, a friend, or a neighbour who can make it possible for other people to see better way of doing things. Leadership does not need to be a dramatic fist in the air and trumpet bellowing activities.
