"To put it simply, leadership is influence" says John MacArthur in The Book on Leadership (Thomas Nelson, 2004, vi).  "The ideal leader is someone whose life and character motivate people to follow.  The best kind of leadership derives its authority first from the force of a righteous example, and not merely from the power of prestige, personality, or position."  Mama Gladdis is a Maasai women who lives in Kenya.  While she might not be a politician, professor, author, or business executive, she is a faithful listener to TWR and has organized 400 fellow TWR listeners into listener groups.  I would call that leadership!
