What Makes a Leader?
“Leadership is the thing that wins battles. I have it but I’ll be damned if I can define it.” –General George S. Patton
Leadership is often daunting. Because every situation is different, there is no foolproof, one-size-fits-all approach to learning the ropes. Instead there are a dizzying number of competing ideas and theories which you may find contradictory. The Leader’s Mentor offers a guide through the maze … and also offers pointers as you undertake the leadership learning process.
