Leadership is the process of providing guidance and direction in the pursuit of a goal, and can exist formally as in businesses and sports teams, or less formally as in relationships between family members and friends. It's often said that one difference (in business) between leaders and managers is that people do what managers tell them to because they have to, but people follow leaders because they want to.

In our modern world we often see examples of leadership in the cases of emergency situations where one person will take initiative and lead others to safety or solutions. Another example is summer camps, or street gangs, where one or more dominant and persuasive personalities will rise to a leadership position through force of personality.
