“Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.” ~ Colin Powell

“Leadership is the art of giving people a platform for spreading ideas that work.” ~ Seth Godin

Best Practices of Successful Managers and Leaders ~ by Dr. Alan Zimmerman
