It begins by asking, 'What is leadership?'
and - in military style - tells you the 'Directing Staff' answer, so there is no need to do any thinking for yourself:

It is the art of influencing a body of people to follow a certain course of action; the art of controlling them, directing them and getting the best out of them. A major part of leadership is Man-Management.

Leadership is then broken down into no less than 17 qualities:

Ability to make decisions

Energy

Humour

Sense of justice

Determination

Example

Physically fit

Pride in command

Loyalty

Sense of duty

Calmness in crisis

Assurance (confidence)

Ability to accept responsibility

Human element

Initiative

Resolute courage

Enthusiasm

Quite how - if at all - one could develop these qualities that make a good leader was not indicated. Experience seemed to be the only doorway. 'Never imagine that you have learnt all about leadership,' the handout concluded. 'You will always have something more to learn, so be prepared to profit by experience. Experience helps a great deal. Take every opportunity of gaining experience in leadership.'
