A leader makes and keeps commitments; A follower makes and forgets promises. A leader says, "I'm good, but not as good as I ought to be;" A follower says, "I'm not as bad as a lot of other people." Leaders feel responsible for more than their job; Followers say, "I only work here." A leader says, "There ought to be a better way to do this;" Followers say, "That's the way it's always been done here."
