November 26, 2012  quotes for leaders
" If being both a leader and a follower is a paradox, then remember, leadership is also about engaging with paradoxes. If you think it is a maxim, then propagate it as an enlightened leader!"
Written in 2012 by Sundar Parthasarathy
As an executive coach, I have come across two kinds of executives: One that thinks that being a leader essentially means stopping to be a follower.

The other one is the self-aware leader who goes on to achieve much in life.
