Perspectives on Leadership
“Leadership is a process of metamorphosis as a leader progresses through the ranks.  What makes a leader great in the early career stages can become a handicap in later stages.  The leader must adapt, acquire new perspectives and skills, and often let go of what made them successful previously in order to be successful at the next level. Leaders that recognize and embrace adapting, learning and letting go are the ones that create a legacy; the rest are rarely remembered.” ~ Teresa J Pool
