You must inspire people, create opportunities for victories, and unravel bureaucracy when it blocks the way to your strategic goal.

Leadership is certainly a shared responsibility – not simply the role of a single senior executive. While Apple’s Steve Jobs is an example of a visionary, innovative individual who possesses inherent traits that inspire, motivate and create new value on an ongoing basis, it would be a poor strategy to pin an organization’s hopes of success on having such a person at the helm.

To succeed in the long term companies must foster the right kinds of innovation-focused skills with leaders who operate at various levels in the organization... More

Leadership is done from in front. Never ask others to do what you, if challenged, would not be willing to do yourself.
