The central responsibility of a leader is to provide the climate necessary for creating growth and success. This success may be economic, social or environmental. Ultimately, if your group or organisation's mission is not successful and you do not manage to grow something - skill, knowledge, service, profits, etc - then you have failed in your responsibilities as a leader. Leaders are constantly being asked to make choices, which often fall into three categories - choosing goals, choosing missions and choosing among people. This learning byte will help to guide you through the various aspects of leadership that drive the success of your enterprise.
