The 2010 Women's Conference
What makes a good leader?
Innovative Spirit - are you willing to be the catalyst to make the change?
Inspire people to follow you. You earn the right to be a leader because the people who follow you want you to lead them.
Courage - willingness to step out into the unknown and challenge others. Being able to take a risk.

The qualities of successful leadership – courage, vision, strength, empowerment – don’t change whether you run a media conglomerate, a non-profit, an Internet search engine or a church. What does change is the challenges each leader faces and the strategies used to solve them. Do women use different strategies that men don’t? Are women different kinds of leaders?
