  • Michael studied the history of social power; he found that History does not repeat itself—World history develops, the most difficult problems of our times are novel- and this is why they are difficult to solve.

    • What did the leaders actually do to merit being a leader?
    • What types of contexts did your leaders encounter?
  • Leadership
    The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you
    can help them or
    concluded that you do not care.
    Either case is a failure of leadership”
    Colin Powell
