Leaders Who Fail...

"Leaders who fail often do so because they fall prey to the pressures and seductions they face. It isn't that they lack leadership skills, style, or power--but that their egos, their greed, their craving for public adulation, and their fear of loss of power overwhelm their responsibility to build their institutions. In contrast, authentic leaders understand that leading is about serving others and bringing them together around a common cause."
