What The President Does

Cool:

  1. Recruit experts, delegate responsibly
  2. Serve as internal (domestic) and external (international) face to the people
  3. Be decisive on key decisions (military, among them) and OK with the consequences

I can think of how this works for not just the President of the United States, but, also many other leadership roles, even and especially community leadership.

A nice template / job outline too (via Bethany Crystal):
