Leaders Inspire Consensus
Leaders value the task over the title. They are more interested in contributing to the greater of the whole than anything else. Leaders value solutions over hierarchy. Leaders have the ability to inspire consensus and do so more often than seeking it.
A great leader doesn’t need to be an expert to solve a problem, because great leaders surround themselves with very smart and capable people. Leaders inspire others to work together by their ability to work with others. They are happier to see others succeed, over personal glory. Great leaders always lead themselves before they attempt to lead others.
