What is a leader?

“Not the cry, but the flight of the wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.”

~ Chinese Proverb

“Eagles <leaders> don’t flock – you have to find them one at a time. ”

~ H. Ross Perot

“Leadership is about capturing the imagination and enthusiasm of your people with clearly defined goals that cut through the fog like a beacon in the light. ”

~ Unknown

“The leader is best, When people are hardly aware of his existence, ┬áNot so good when people praise his government, Less good when people stand in fear, Worst, when people are contemptuous.

Fail to honor people, and they will fail to honor you. But of a good leader, who speaks little, When his work is done, his aim fulfilled, The people say, ‘We did it ourselves.'”

~ Lao Tzu
