A word from the author

“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn't try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn't need others' approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.”—Lao Tzu

Whether one thinks leadership can be taught or is part of one’s DNA, there is much to learn about the subject. By examining examples of great leaders, their words, and the principles those words embody, one can learn a great deal about leading institutions of any kind.

Some might conclude it is unrealistic to seek to be like those quoted in this book. But no one would deny the principles those leaders embody apply to all of us—or, more accurately, the principles can and should be applicable to all of us. Without ever approaching their level of success, we can gain insights and tools that can aid anyone who wants to lead.

We certainly need more and better leaders in this country and world. While this little effort clearly does not claim it will produce them, it cannot hurt, and it just might help those who seek to lead.

Valuable lessons

“Hull's use of quotations from some of history's great leaders provides context for some of the valuable lessons he is teaching. It may be a bit out of the academic reach for some readers- but in a country where we currently lack any form of leadership it's refreshing to find a writer who still understands the true meaning of the word "leader."”
