Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.

The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.Tweet
Leadership is not magnetic personality, that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not “making friends and influencing people”, that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to higher sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.

The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit it, for the greatness is there already.
Leaders are more powerful role models when they learn than when they teach.Tweet
