Beyond Skill

“Leadership courses can only teach skill. They can’t teach character or vision-and indeed they don’t even try. Developing character and vision is the way leaders invent themselves.” – Warren Bennis “On Becoming A Leader”

With character and vision comes direction and trust. Anyone can direct people, but it is character and vision that bring people back again and again to be lead because they trust the leader knows where they are heading.
