Leadership is the action of leading a group of people or an organisation, a state of position of a leader or the group of people who lead or head. The action of leadership usually consists of telling people what to do, and supervising and organising their actions. A leadership is often based on a voluntary or compulsory agreement to give the leaders the authority to lead and control others. The leadership often benefits from its position by special privileges and power.
