Fortune Depends on the Tone of Your Voice

I just got back from a congrats dinner thrown by some fellow PM*'ers. I got a nice certificate, I call it my 'get out of jail free' card.

During the lunch, I cited a quotation, figured I share it. I don't think leaders have to know a definition of a leader, but for people who 'don't get it,' I think its a good assessment.

"A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the quality of his actions and the integrity in his intent. Without passion, boldness, and focus, consistent success is elusive."

Nice, Very Nice ----
