Leadership The best of all leaders is the one who helps people. So that, eventually they don't need him. Then comes the one they love and admire. Then comes the one they fear. The worst is the one who lets people push him around. Where there is no trust, people will act in bad faith. The best leader doesn't say much, but what he says carries weight. When he is finished with his work, the people say; It happened naturally. Lao Tzu 550 BC
Becoming a Leader Inherited - the family is accountable. Appointed - the appointer is accountable. Promoted - the promoter is accountable. Elected - the people are accountable. Earned - the leader is accountable.
