For anyone in a leadership role responsible for managing and supporting a team, here is a quote by Antoine De Saint, a French adventurer and writer, that can work as a guiding principle for what good Leadership can be.
If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather the wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.
Management is about organizing people and telling them what to do. True Leadership, in contrast, is getting them to WANT to do it themselves.
