“Leadership is not endowed by nature nor is it unique to certain individuals. It is not necessarily even the person who is at the helm of the ship, but is rather any individuals who offer help to a cause. They are leaders in this way because a leader is a person able to mobilize action, be it in himself or others.” (Moyagaye Bedward)
