”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.” - Peter F. Drucke
