Norf, one of the things you should know – and I’ve never seen this anywhere – is that the evidence of leadership is willing followers.
You’ll see all manner of information about how this person or that person is such a great leader; but if no one or relatively few are following voluntarily, then whatever that person is doing, it’s not leading.
Coercion isn’t leadership; neither is it when people are threatened with some enforceable penalty for failing to do so.
For the purposes of this group, I’m not sure what that means.
Views aren’t necessarily a valid measure. All you have to do is ask a question, and every time someone reads it, that counts as a view. But that doesn’t mean that that person is leading; only that some curiosity has been generated.
What for you would be evidence of leadership in this forum?
