“The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.” – Ronald Reagan, an American politician who became the highly influential voice of modern conservatism.
When it comes to leadership, one interesting fact is that every successful organization in history at some point in time had or still has iconic leaders in the driver’s seat. Someone who understands the in and out of the business world, how things work, and how to get things done when they should be done. Great examples are; Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook, Pamela Nicholson of Enterprise Rent-A-Car, etc. All notable individuals who are leading Chief Operating Officers of multi-billion dollar companies.
