Leadership can be identified in its elements in any situation which has a group of people willing to go over and beyond to achieve a common goal. Is leadership an activity or a process? The leadership process involves such things as an influence, exemplary behaviour or persuasion. It involves actors who are both leaders and followers.
The leadership process has various outcomes – most obviously the achievement of goals, but also the commitment of individuals to such goals.
