Deuxièmement, le leadership est un appel à enrichir la vie de la population ou des groupes de personnes via vos politiques, programmes et projets. Il ne est jamais un appel pour enrichir votre propre auto. En conclusion, le leadership est un privilège d'avoir un impact positif sur la vie de la population ou des groupes de personnes.

Maintenant, ce est juste une réflexion pour dirigeants actuels et leaders potentiels.
