What Seperates Real Leaders

“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” – Lord Action 1887

A test to find a great leader is whether or not he can voluntarily step away from leadership and its power for the better of the team.

The suprising result of putting the team first is the additional power and trust you gain from them.
