• "The reality of true leadership is that your rights actually DECREASE as you rise in the organization, while your responsibilities INCREASE. This suggests that leadership involves not power or prestige but servanthood." Pg. 46 • "Two of the most important words in a leader’s vocabulary are listen and learn. An effective leader never stops listening to people and never stops learning." Pg. 59
