The Merged (universal) Definition of a Leader
Amongst different definitions with which the picture of a leader is associated, there also appear ones that provide a key aspect in the process of unifying people into a greater whole. The concept of the aspect is essential, since it unveils the nature of its character as one
of the primary elements which has an effect on the development of collective consciousness. The present solutions we will concentrate on are the extraction of the significance of a leader one who evinces and is a symbolic representation of certain collective envisions, feelings, needs and wants, which, when experienced between people, strengthens the bonds throughout the whole unit.
