At a meeting yesterday, I said, "Leadership is choosing which pressure to cave to." I've had this thought for several years, although I'm not sure whether I made it up or borrowed it from someone. In either case, it was received as a scrap of wisdom, so I pass it on here.

The corollary: To get what you want, organize people to put pressure on you that you want to cave to.
