In this article, the writer notes that many social, cultural and environmental factors impact the type of leadership qualities displayed by individuals. The writer maintains that the leadership quality most desired is the ability to have a vision and then follow through until the vision is realized through personal example or proper motivation. However, leadership qualities are also dependent on the situation and the environment. The writer discusses the differences of male-female leadership styles in terms of fair and ethical treatment within an organization's culture and climate. The writer argues that no matter what the nature of the society or the thought process of individuals who are able to coax, changes and thinking are generally never restricted by race or gender. The writer concludes that gender in reality is not as significant if the individual possesses the traits required of a leader.
