When leaders connect with others, nearly magical change is possible.  People are often caught working in the realm of the routine, never-changing schedule of activities.  Leaders whisper into the ears of followers, “Something more is possible.  You have a place in making this happen.” The best way to enroll a team is to show colleagues […]

Leaders take us to new places.  Once we have been there, the region has been explored.  The […]
