Exactly.

"Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it." - Dwight D. Eisenhower

Leaders are viewed as the ones in charge but is not always the case. Some people think that because their rank,they are in charge. I think a servant leader as well as a leader that can lead from the front can also be a good combination. An experienced NCO told me once that if if I was going to work just for the paycheck it was time for me to look for something else to do. He said that after explaining to me that leadership had nothing to do with rank but with the abilities to make other people do something extraordinary because they felt inspired not forced to do it. That is the kind of leader I strive to be every day, one that devotes himself to his Soldiers but can also take care of his family, has the common sense to exercise what he believes in, and believes and have faith on what he does for the sake of the people. The common denominator here is "People", we lead people and we must not forget that people will be the force or the demise of the organization.

That is exactly how I approached completion of any assigned mission from my command team. All of my Soldiers would do what was required because they know I would be right by their side! I have even placed myself in a tasker instead of my Soldiers because I thought it important for them to see that I was willing to do the same as them.
