“I don’t claim to know much about governing, except it’s not often done well. The men who govern aren’t idiots, no matter what anyone says. That tells me that it’s not near as easy as it looks. There aren’t many who want good governors. Most want a governor who will help them.”
– L. E. Modesitt Jr., Princeps
Read the above quote again but replace the word governor with leader, manager or with another position in your company, organization or society.
How would you describe a good leader/manager/……? How would you describe a bad leader/manager/……?
The difference between someone who is a good leader and someone who we only think is a good leader might be in what they give us;
A good leader will give you what you need, a bad leader will give you what you want!
