Leadership: Living a life of success or a life of significance?
James Kouzes & Barry Posner in A Leader’s Legacy, 2006
“Lead from the gut.
Know your pegs and shims.
Stay hugely humble.
Get mud on your boots.
And trust yourself.“
- Trust is the foundation of leadership. A strong, dependable respectful character is a leader and will be trusted.

- Successful leaders are learners, and the learning process is ongoing. A result of self-discipline and perseverance.
- The first person you lead is you.
