What is a Leader?

Two weekends ago at Camp CEO, our keynote speaker was Dr Anne Baker, Executive Director of the Toledo Zoo.

Her early Saturday morning talk was about leadership.

One sentence that I remember and have repeated so much since hearing it was: (And I may not have this quote perfect, here!)

"A leader listens so that she may change her mind."

That is a very short sentence. That is also a very powerful sentence.

Thanks, Dr. Baker for challenging me to think about whether I am a good leader.
