This is the kind of response I would expect from the definition of “leader” that I’ve become accustomed to: Do your job, compartmentalize the rest. This leader demands and commands respect and attention, they succeed (all the time), they’re noticeable, they don’t put up with any bullshit. These attributes, as I hope you’ve noticed by this time in cultural history, are traditionally masculine characteristics. They are words of domination, of presence, of power. I believed for the longest time that to be in power, I had to be this specific definition of powerful.
