What makes a good leader?

A good leader is someone who can inspire and direct through positive action - to encourage others to want to follow rather than just follow. The aspirations of a good leader are to improve the world around them, not just their place in the world.

Is leadership different for disabled people?

Having a visible disability can change the experience of leadership. The view others have of a leader is influenced by their own preconceptions, and this includes their preconceptions of disabled people (as well as those of the disabled person themselves). Rather than starting from a clean slate it is often necessary to deconstruct existing stereotypes before one can build a platform for leadership.
