The principles of leadership in academic research, reflect those of life in general and differ only by circumstance. A great leader is one who inspires and energizes, motivating and empowering the whole team to achieve. They articulate a vision, establish direction, clarify the big picture and set clear strategies in a positive culture. A great leader needs to align and connect people by fostering excellent communication channels, gaining commitment and building teams and coalitions.
