US News and World Report has named America's Best Leaders 2009 which is worth reading. The definition of leadership that they used was- someone who motivates people to work collectively to accomplish great things. The criteria they assessed in order to select the list were: sets direction; achieves results; and cultivates a culture of growth.
There is also a commentary written by David Gergen The National Deficit- Of Leadership in which he discusses the need for good followers as well as good leaders. I would argue that we have a global deficit of strong leaders.

Many of our readers are great leaders. The global economy is in a mess. But the opportunity in this crisis, is that you could step up and speak and act as the leader that you are inside. Others will follow. Good luck!
