“I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.” – Ralph Nader
Can anyone honestly tell me who is leading the Republican Party? I know Michael Steele is the chairman, but is he leading or following?
“The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision.” – Theodore Hesbargh
We hear the disingenuous outrage from various Republican Governors and Republican Congressmen, but no leader. Just people following the same grand ole mantra, but who’s listening? We’ve heard no solutions, just No.
“The manager asks how and when; the leader asks what and why.” – Warren Bennis
A leader can not be eternally negative, nor can a leader follow whatever is popular. Being a true leader is not always being popular, but if you are popular (i.e. President Obama) use that popularity for good. If you are a popular leader try to use that popularity to empower and inspire those that may follow you to not be taken by the opinions or moods of popular opinion.
