We Can All Be Leaders

From Crossroads Dispatches:

"Simply wow! Best definition of leadership...

Leadership is communicating people's worth and potential so clearly that they come to see it in themselves. Notice the words worth and potential. People must feel an intrinsic sense of worth - that is, they have intrinsic value - totally apart from being compared to others, and that they are worthy of unconditional love, regardless of behavior or performance. Then when you communicate their potential and create opportunities to develop and use it, you are building on a solid foundation. To communicate people's potential and give them a sense of extrinsic worth is a flawed foundation, and their potential will never be optimized. - Stephen Covey, The 8th Habit"
