Leaders need to have a vision and a conviction but most of all they need a group. Good leaders are part of the group, connect directly with the group and are accountable. Good leaders do not ask the group to do something they would not do.

In general disabled people have an inferiority complex when working with non disabled people and vice versa. Non disabled people are seen as smarter, cleverer, more resourceful and more often than not take over leadership even if they don’t mean to. Disabled leaders need pride in themselves as do disabled people in general to resist this. We have enough non disabled leaders - we need more of us.

I agree with JK Rowling that the best leaders have power thrust upon them out of necessity and don’t seek power for themselves. Good leaders make everyone discover their power whilst keeping focused on the prize.
