Quote :: Leadership

"Leadership is - by its very nature - already extreme. Real leaders are already embroiled in extreme acts: they're taking us to places we've never been, turning nothing into something, taking something good and turning it into something great, helping us to grow as human beings and changing the pieces of the world that they touch. Or the whole world, for that matter. The Extreme Leader is, therefore, the only true and authentic leader. But here's the problem: many people who call themselves leaders are only posing. They're wearing the label or accepting the title without putting their skin in the game. Extreme (real) Leadership takes a personal commitment and a significant, personal choice...As Terry Pearce said...in the San Francisco Examiner: 'There are many people who think they want to be matadors, only to find themselves in the ring with two thousand pounds of bull bearing down on them, and then discover that what they really wanted was to wear tight pants and hear the crowd roar.'" - By Steve Farber, Fast Company Weblog, May 3, 2004
