Leadership Ability

"Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership."
-Colin Pow

A manager is someone who gives the answers away. A leader is someone who helps the person find the answers for themselves. Ideally, you want the people to still be productive on days when you're not accessible. It simply can't be done if you're the "answer" guy since you're teaching them to rely on you VS having them think for themselves.
