“Leadership is power to endure an ongoing quest for information or influence . . . not just actual triumphs like making profits or achieving stated objectives.” – Marsha Sinetar
I believe in the information part – but, one should be careful about seeking influence (it can get to your head pretty quick). And you have to combine those quests with precise execution (or at least some execution), or you wind up “thinking” about all the knowledge you have, frozen, staring…at the headlights coming at you.
As usual, thanks go out to the contributors.
