When this influence is exercised without resorting to coercion can be talking about leadership and healthy way to implement it. Leadership is the pursuit of common goals through voluntary cooperative effort of all members of a group made either by agreement of the parties or by the developments. Good leadership is built on two pillars: the formal power and moral authority. The formal power is derived from a fee or a designation made by the group or who have in their hands the power to do it. It has formal power a mayor who has been anointed with the vote of their fellow citizens or manager who has been designated as such by a decree or any other form of choice. Also has the father and, in some ways the teacher in the classroom. Formal power is also the referee in football match and the policeman who has been blamed for the order in a particular sector of the city. The moral authority instead is not received from any person or obtained by a decree or other document.
It is necessary to win, build, build it every day through the behavior and commitment. Appropriate behavior as a member of a community which expects significant our contribution so that it remains united, no doubt aimed towards achieve their highest goals. And also depends on the commitment to others on a topic that is vital: the service. True leaders, guides genuine humanity is not characterized by the orders he gave, nor by the number of people who ordered the provision but had to serve others with generosity and humility. One of the greatest leaders of humanity have once said to his disciples: "For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many" (Mark 10:45 ) "These are thus the keys to leadership: the formal power and formal authority. Someone with formal power, it could build the moral authority. It is difficult, but it can be. Moreover, it would be ideal. And someone to develop the moral authority eventually receive formal power as so often has happened and we can see personalities cone Nelson Mandela, the father of the new South Africa, to cite just one example. Leadership is essential in development of peoples. And the service is part of the essence of leadership. At the time of Jesus, at the time of Mandela and at all times.
