A good leader is not a superstar who mesmerizes with the force of rhetoric or flashy deeds. While lesser people crave power and dominance, a good leader rejects competitive hierarchies as unnatural. Leaders build networks, realizing were part of the interlocking web of life. Good leaders lead with a new combination of talents: cooperation, awareness of the cycles, courage, and facilitation.
