ReTHINK: Getz inspired

Mandela on Leadership: Inspire Others to Exceed Their Own Expectations

An excerpt from the Forbes.

Source : Mandela on Leadership

“What is your philosophy on leadership?” Mandela asks the sportsman. “How do you inspire your team to do their best?”
“By example,” Pienaar responds, a bit nervously. “I’ve always thought to lead by example, sir.”
“Well, that is right. That is exactly right,” Mandela says. “But how do we get them to be better than they think they can be? That is very difficult, I find.” With a slight grin, he continues, “Inspiration, perhaps. How do we inspire ourselves to greatness when nothing less will do? How do we inspire everyone around us? I sometimes think it is by using the work of others.”
And this is from Tribes to you... Getz inspired ;)
