On leadership: “…we all fall down”? Thankfully not.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_a_Ring_o%27_Roses

If everything hung on the leader and their inferred or semi-realistic omnipotence, the smallest flaw or limitation of the leader would, indeed, follow the course of the old “Ring-a-ring of roses” song: we would ALL fall down as the leader fell (or falls) from grace.

Maxwell’s more complete maxim

Power, titles & experience ≠ Leadership

What leadership ain’t…

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves. Lao Tzu

Final reflections: What is the magic sauce of true leadership? And are our leaders using it?

Balance: Enter in The Buddha and Gandhi

Always forgive, never forget
