When we think of leadership, many people have different expectations and views of what a leader should be. We're going to begin to define the Five Levels of Leadership that you need to build on. You don't build one level and leave it. It is something that you continually do as a leader because a leader is always learning. Leadership and influence are subtle yet incredibly powerful. You can order someone to do a task, but you cannot order them to do their best. It simply does not work and usually has the opposite effect.
