“Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.” – John F. Kennedy
“A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go but ought to be.” – Rosalynn Carter
“Great leaders don’t set out to be a leader. They set out to make a difference. It’s never about the role – it’s always about the goal.” – Michael Josephson
Great leaders are both idealistic and realistic. They have a grand vision and great goals. They seek to close the gap between what is and what can be but they have no illusions that success is either certain or simple.
Take a look around. Business, education, politics. If there’s one thing we don’t have enough of, it’s good leaders —men and women who have the vision and the ability to change things for the better.
