Leadership 

The orchestration of scarce resources and generation of new resources under conditions of uncertainty and inertia to help a group overcome its challenges, unite around a set of values, and, by acting together in a strategic fashion, thrive.

Karim Bardeesy and Ian Clark, PPG-2014, University of Toronto (drawing on Dean Williams, Real Leadership: Helping People and Organizations Face Their Toughest Challenges, Barret-Koehler Publishers, 2005.)
