A leader is best when…

October 19, 2009

A leader is best when people barely know he exists.

Not so good when people obey and acclaim him.

Worse when they despise him.

Fail to honor people and they fail to honor you.

But of a good leader who talks little,

when her work is done, his aim fulfilled,

the people will say “We did this ourselves.”

–Lao Tzu
