Classical Leadership

I’m a fan of creative leadership; and I’m also a fan of classical leadership. These two little photocopied snippets were given to me by a mentor roughly four years ago. He’s the quiet, bighearted leader of a small national company -- with the kind of humble charm that always reminded me of what David Brooks described to me once. I recall the CEO reaching into his desk and pulling out one of these snippets during one of my visits; and then he pulled the other one (laminated in plastic by himself) off his wall and gave it to me. There’s nothing like the little treasures in life that might come your way ... -JM

Clippings on leaders' walls are wise to collect.
