Explanation:
I liked this form of translation in an article I found about the definition of leadership, if you want to decline a little from the standard translation.

“El liderazgo consiste en la habilidad para decidir lo que se debe hacer y luego lograr que otros quieran hacerlo” (Dwight D. Eisenhower) y una última que según el autor de este espacio es muy convincente y profunda: “El liderazgo es una clase de práctica ética y social que emerge cuando las personas de una comunidad, motivadas por la esperanza, enfrentan situaciones falsas y actúan, con coraje y al unísono con sus seguidores, para convertirlas en auténticas” (Robert Terry en “Leadership –A Preview of a Seventh View”).
