What makes a good leader?

A good leader should have good communications skills and an empathetic nature. They should be a 'survivor' and aim to further their own skills and to achieve the best that they can for themselves and others.

Is leadership different for disabled people?

I find that this gives us a well needed impetus and empathy and an urgency that the non disabled may find difficult to understand. We are not necessarily better just different!!!

Do you think there are barriers to leadership for disabled people that non-disabled people don't face?

Barriers...what are they? I don't feel that my disability is a barrier. Any hurdles that I face, I have to overcome whether I have a disability or not.
