“Leadership is simply causing
other people to do what the
leaders want.”
“Leadership is the
ability to inspire
motivation in others to
move toward a desirable
vision.”
“Leadership is the process of encouraging
certain behaviors in others via force of
personality, persuasion and eloquent
communication.”

“To be a highly functional system, hierarchy
must balance the welfare, freedoms and
responsibilities of the subsystems and total
system--there must be enough central
control to achieve coordination toward the
large system goal, and enough autonomy to
keep all subsystems flourishing, functioning,
and self-organizing.”
Donella. H. Meadows

It’s not simple.
It’s not easy.
There is no one right way.
There is no prescriptive plan.
You won’t get there in one giant leap.
Esther Derby

It is possible.
You will get there by experimenting, having
conversations, learning.
You will create a more flexible organization.
You will increase the speed and ease of
communication.
You will improve the pace and appropriateness of
decisions.
You will unleash potential.
