Ken Blanchard On Being A Leader


.
I think people want to be magnificent. Its the job of the
leader to bring out that magnificence in people and to
create an environment where they feel safe and
supported and ready to do the best job possible in
accomplishing key goals. This responsibility is a sacred
trust that should not be violated. The opportunity to
guide others to their fullest potential is an honor and one
that should not be taken lightly. As leaders, we hold the
lives of others in our hands. These hands need to be
gentle and caring and always available for support.
