Leadership is everything. It's understanding what motivates you staff and implementing the ideas that will keep that motivation. It's maintaining your emotions when times are tough and letting your emotions go when times are good. It's being consistent in your decision making, removing the crazy makers, and being there when you staff needs you. It's creating a fun environment. It's setting and maintaining standards. It's choosing a good attitude each day you show up to work. The person that can do these things well typically is an affective leader.
