Thoughts on Leadership

I found a great quote on leadership from reading “The Dean’s Disease” from my previous post

. . . excellent leaders are those who are self-confident enough about who they are and their values that they don’t view people as threats. In fact the best leaders I’ve ever seen are the ones who readily admit that there’s always going to be someone more talented. Not only are they not threatened by that, but the best leaders are the one’s who constantly try to surround themselves with people who are more talented than they are or complement the leader’s weaknesses.
