ABSTRACT
The article discuses about the characteristics of successful leaders. Leadership is not the ability to generate a good idea, there is an abundance of good ideas. The most pressing problem is how to turn good ideas into action. Consensus builders are everywhere. These are folks who do their political mapping, understand the terrain of allies and resistors, and spend time building coalitions of support. The problem is, that's where they stop. They never seem to get past that stage. Politically competent leaders reduce the risk of acting on inadequate or incomplete information by getting as many people as possible on their side.
