Leaders know and understand their people. They treat them with dignity and respect.
The employer generally gets the employees he deserves.
—Sir Walter Gibley

The best leaders become cooler when the heat is turned up....Crisis is the true test of a person's leadership ability.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
—Martin Luther King, Jr.

Leaders recognize good work as quickly as they recognize poor work.
The deepest principle of human nature is the craving to appreciated.
