Leadership is another one of those everyday things that require communication skills. Leadership isn't just about making speeches, but about gaining acceptance of your ideas. Leadership is all the buzz right now, but leadership is so much more than power or charisma. Leadership, Godly Leadership, true leadership, is so much more than that!

Leadership requires us to communicate our vision and that we are someone worth following.
