  •  Exactly right (9+ / 0-)

    The best leaders never demand, they never push. They don't have to. People WANT to help them, they WANT to please them.

    And the best leaders surround themselves with people who aren't afraid to speak their minds, because saying something the leader doesn't want to hear won't get you punished. Not as long as it's the truth, and presented honestly and respectfully.

    It's a trust thing. The best leaders trust people to do the right thing, and tell the truth.

    •  People often rise up to your expectations of them (0+ / 0-)

      And you get the most loyalty from people who respect you for your treatment of THEM.

      This is true strength.

      Do unto others ... You know the rest.

      It's all in the numbers - register voters for Obama, Today! OBAMA/BIDEN '08!
