an impressive book on leadership.

i’m currently reading this book for my leadership class that i am taking this summer.  it is fantastic and i highly recommend it, no matter what kind of leadership position or role you are in (even if you don’t think you ARE in a leadership position or role).

“…almost everyone who was functioning in a reactive, defensive way and failing to define his or her own position clearly…had become so focused on the aches and pains (pathology) in the system that they had been thrown off course. They had stopped supplying vision, or had burned out fighting the resistance; they had ceased to be the strength in the system. In short, they had forgotten to lead.”
