“The wicked leader is he who the people despise.
The good leader is he who the people revere.
The great leader is he who the people say,
‘We did it ourselves’.”
— Lao Tzu
This is an interesting quote to contemplate. Another way to look at it is that the wicked leader is discomfort, the good leader is comfort, and the great leader is empowerment.
It is easy to see the wicked leader as one to avoid. It is easy to see the good leader as a friend, caring, and often we might miss the real value of the great leader as one who empowers, encourages our own inner drive and enthusiastic spirit to come out as if we alone were in charge.
Often, we may not recognize the opportunity we all have, and thereby potentially create a great leader by default.
