It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.

John J Pershing
