I wrote an article several months back that I keep referring to in dialogue with many folks. Recently I had a Facebook exchange with someone that was intellectually entertaining and led me right back to the article.

- “Great leadership, like great comedy, is both difficult and risky. In most cases, great leaders lift everyone up and the only person they may diminish is themselves. Great leaders and great comedians are masters of self-deprecating humor and the art of elevating everyone.”
- “Leadership is not just an act, it is also a responsibility. Great leadership inspires personal responsibility, personal accountability and the group dynamic that supports collective selflessness and morality. On the contrary, the leadership of division is like the dark side of the force – it can be very powerful – but it is Machiavellian in nature and morally bankrupt”
