Authentic leaders have absorbed the fundamental fact of existence -- that you can't get around life's inherent contradictions. The leadership mind is spacious.

Synergy is everywhere in nature. If you plant two plants close together, the roots commingle and improve the quality of soil so that both plants will grow better than if they were separated. If you put two pieces of wood together, they will hold much more weight than the total of the weight held by each separately. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. One plus one equals three or more.

It's amazing what ordinary people can do if they set out without preconceived notions.
Charles F. Kettering
Look at the weaknesses of others with compassion, not accusation. It's not what they're not doing or should be doing that's the issue.
