A Leader doesn’t just know the way, they show the way.
A true leader isn't a know-it-all.
They're not even a show-it-all.
A true leader knows and shows "the way".
The way to bring out the best in others.
The way to help those they manage realize (and reach) their potential.
The way to instill confidence in those who follow them.
The way to earn trust from those they lead.
A true leader talks the talk AND walks the walk.
They know the way because they've been here before.
They know what it takes to emerge victorious because they know the way the game is played -- and know how to win (and they can show you how to win too).
True leaders may not have the answer to every question, but they know ways that you can find the solution (and they aren't afraid to show you).
True leaders aren't threatened by the leadership potential in those they mentor.
They foster it.
They nurture it.
True leaders are incubators for the next generation of leaders.
They win when you win.
The way they know that they have become a great leader is when you become a great leader.
