In the first Toy Story installment, Woody struggles with losing Andy's interest to a space toy named Buzz Lightyear.
In the second Toy Story installment, Woody struggles with his own mortality after he starts to rip apart after decades of play. He concerned he will be thrown away as he seems to have outlived his usefulness.
Woody's trials and shaped beliefs in the first two Toy Story installments are vital in the third installment, where he must help Andy's other toys as they struggle with losing Andy's interest and their own mortality.

He is very stern with his vision and every action executed is to accomplish that goal/vision
Woody inspires his followers; his followers in return conduct proper "followership".

Woody is humble, even after being praised. He also demonstrates his team attitude again.
Woody could have easily accepted the praise and let his ego grow, but he chose to stay humble
Woody only focused on the team, his first question was "where's Buzz?". His caring really outshines here.
Human - has doubts and gets angry
Woody isn't a controlling leader.
Allowed group discussion
Woody has appointed Buzz to be second in command
Woody does everything for the good of the team
Woody left his dream of going to college and decided to go with his family
He wrote the street address of a child who would play with the toys (as we see when Andy walks into the yard)
