Great presentation. Thanks. It’s a very clear relationship between the characteristics of ‘charismatic visionary leader’ and the their focus on leading the organization. Yet, what is the relationship between the characteristics of ‘build to last leader’ (such as soft spoken, gentle, humble, etc.) and the their focus on building the organization?

Jerry Porras’ video on Leadership and Vision was very informative and had me contemplating of the quality that makes me who I am. What are the core values that define me? Which values do I hold dearly and would not violate under any circumstances, no matter what the outcome might be? Furthermore how do these core values push me to work (or build) an organization that aligns with who I am?

Leadership is not about commanding, its comes from on the root word leading. Leading people towards clear vision and one goal.

Leadership is by Choice. One can be a leader if he chooses it. Check out the amazing book on leadership - "Leadership by Choice" by Eric Papp. One can download the free chapter on his website

I think his predication for Apple is very close to the truth. Tim will never pull Apple to next height. Just like Steve Balmer cannot get MS running as good as Bill Gates was there.

RIP Steve Jobs. Now let's see how this guy's prediction pans out.
