A new leader always appears in every era, in Indonesia, a large country in Southeast Asia have gained Jokowi as a new leader. Joko Widodo is then known as Jokowi, was born in a small town, Solo, Central Java. Starting from a "regular", this Metal Rock music fan, was transformed into a furniture entrepreneur, successful export a wide range of furniture products abroad.

 The hallmark of Jokowi  leadership is prioritize dialogue with various parties, especially with people he would regulate, for example, the street vendors, informal settlements dwellers who occupy the riverbanks, or those who occupy lands owned by the government. As he proved in Solo, Jokowi do not need to use an iron hand to right the situation and carry out legal action. Jokowi have prepared a solution for every action that he did, so that the opposition cannot be easy to criticize Jokowi.

Jokowi leadership has now become a unique phenomenon in Indonesia, and used as an example by people in other areas, so it is not a surprise as the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP), finally nominate this skinny guy as President of Indonesia. Based on a quick count, Jokowi successfully won the presidential election. As president, Jokowi Indonesia has the opportunity to lead with vision and a new mission, to make Indonesia more severe than in the previous decade.

Leadership is not only required by a nation, even a family or a small company, and ourselves are also needed. Then, what is the meaning of leadership?

Have you ever dreamed to become a leader? We can be a leaderin many areas of life such as leading a company, the president of our country, city, led friends at an event on campusor lead a group. You can become a leader in any field, if you have strong dreams and want to understand the various aspects and the art of leadership.

In smaller environments such as within a family, we can lead a household with a husband or wife of our beloved. Some say that a person exists because the leader was born to be leaders. Is that true? Others say, that leadership can be studied scientifically.

A leader can give effect to many people. Why? A leader is seen from the behavior, body language, his smile, attitude, what was said, and what actions

Did George Washington, Sukarno (Founding father and first President of the Republic of Indonesia), John F. Kennedy, Jesus Christ, Dalai Lama,Steve Jobs, Mikael Gorbachev, is a leader? Whoever the leader, they are also human. They must have had weaknesses and strengths.

If you feel you were not born as a leader, believe me, leadership can be learned from the theory, seminars, reading success stories of world leaders, Kings, presidents, singers, businessmen, or the story of the existing informal community leader. When there are seminars on leadership, I suggest you attend this seminar because you'll get the story and experience of the leader. Or you can get inspiration from speech or utterance of those famous quotes like the following:

Leadership is understanding people and involving them to help you do a job. That takes all of the good characteristics, like integrity, dedication of purpose, selflessness, knowledge, skill, implacability, as well as determination not to accept failure. Admiral Arleigh A. Burke

Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other. John F. Kennedy.

"Thousands of parents can only dream, a youth can change the world" Sukarnothe first President of Republic Indonesia. He proclaimed the independence of Indonesia on August 17, 1945. 

Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better. Harry S. Truman 

The task of the leader is to get his people from where they are to where they have not been. ~Henry Kissinger

Good leadership consists of showing average people how to do the work of superior people. 
John D. Rockefeller 

We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK. That's not leadership. That's not going to happen. Barack Obama 

It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership. 
Nelson Mandela 

Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things. 
Peter Drucker 

A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better. Jim Rohn 

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

Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership. Colin Powell

Leadership to me means duty, honor, country. It means character, and it means listening from time to time. George W. Bush 

The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office. 
Dwight D. Eisenhower 
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out. Stephen Covey 

The leader has to be practical and a realist, yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.~Eric Hoffer

I speak directly to the people, and I know that the people of California want to have better leadership. They want to have great leadership. They want to have somebody that will represent them. And it doesn't matter if you're a Democrat or a Republican, young or old. 
Arnold Schwarzenegger 

Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
~Ross Perot
Finally, a leader must have a sincere heart, as Ross Perot mentioned above.
