Being a Real Leader

"Leaders focus on the soft stuff. People. Values. Character. Commitment. A cause. ... it's the stuff that real leaders take care of first. And forever. That's why leadership is an art, not a science."

--Tom Peters

Are measurements your first focus of leadership?

I agree with this - leaders aren't the ones who can do the most. They are the ones that can hold things together.

Interesting read, Meena. But truthful. Leaders alone cannot make things happen themselves.

For me, leaders must first focus on people before numbers.

People alone will get any company or organization on the profitable path.

This path is one of building people first.

Thanks for the comment, Meena.
