“I learnt the most important lesson from Drucker, he once said to me, ‘ Remember, a leader really only has one choice to make: to lead or mislead. The proper end of all leadership is the thriving of those who are following the leader. Leadership is not simply about the vision or desires of the leader. Rather, true leadership looks to the needs and abilities of those who are being led, true leadership entails taking responsibility for those who are following you.’ “
