“A good leader gets things done; a great leader aspires, inspires, and achieves more.
How do you become the kind of leader people want to follow? How do you get other people, by free will and free choice, to move forward together in pursuit of a common vision? How do you mobilize others to want to struggle for shared aspirations?
Asking leaders about their personal bests is important, but it’s only half the story. Leadership is a relationship between leaders and followers. A more complete picture of leadership develops when you understand what people look for in someone they would willingly follow…”
