  25. 25. LOOK &LISTEN: All these great leaders have a vision, and the ability to manifest it. These all the leaders were defining their own vision and begins with looking & listing.

  28. 28. EMOTIONAL BONDING: Leaders bring out the best in others, but successful visionaries go even further. They form lasting emotional bonds. When people are emotionally bonded to you, they want to have contact with you. They want to be of service and share in your vision. To create such bonds, you must be willing to build real relationships and share yourself.
