A great leader also design the structure - social systems- where resistance will be turned into strength and utilize that strength to channel the flow of value at all levels towards direction of organizational vision and goals. That leadership must exist at all level; remember, leadership and management are the two sides of the same coin! (Please check Leadership and Management discussions in this site.)
This type of leadership requires, surprisingly, introvert thinking as well extrovert thinking in equal proportions- a kind of left and right brain thinking in unison. All great leaders are systems thinkers, and all the rest are mere slogan creators.
