Who comes to mind when you think of a good leader? While many of us can intuitively discern what makes a leader effective or not, few of us take the time to truly understand what leadership actually means or what defines a strong leader. 

"What Makes a Good Leader? asks learners to consider the qualities of good leadership, to take the time to truly understand what leadership actually means, and to consider what defines a strong leader.
