  9. 9. leaders fail to empower others  Desire for job security  Resistance to change  Lack of self-worth

  11. 11. conclusion  "Leadership must be based on goodwill... It means obvious and wholehearted commitment to helping followers... What we need for leaders are men of heart who are so helpful that they, in effect, do away with the need of their jobs. But leaders like that are never out of a job, never out of followers. Strange as it sounds, great leaders gain authority by giving it away."
