Leaders inspire people with clear visions of how things can be done better.

Jack Welch

Create an open organization

"Speed is the product of an open organization. Enormous energy and the ability to energize others is one of our critical values. Involve everyone and move quickly. If you can't come to a fast decision, and you can't get everybody in the game quickly, then you don't have the right values. Being a brilliant administrator is not enough. You've got to excite people. Get them going."
