Replying to LO6353 --

Dare I share it one more time? The old Scottish dictionary
definition of leadership: "To show the way by going first."

This implies no coercion, no manipulation, no "making meaning for
others". It implies courage, thinking and action.

When one "shows the way by going first" it allows others to make
meaning that they might not have otherwise made. It also allows them
not to take any heed.
