that’s a great line for a cheerleader. but not a real leader.

real leaders have unwavering faith in their organization’s ability to pull through and succeed even in difficult times. but real leaders also never lose sight of the hard facts. they understand when priorities need to shift and when people need to change and when their organization needs to reinvent itself.

they understand that when you’re all in it together, if you’re not heading down the right path, you all end up in the wrong place together.

before you play to win, it’s best to understand the kind of game you’re playing.
