Max De Pree claims that leadership isn't a science or a discipline, but an art. He advises that leaders don't inflict pain, they bear pain; the first responsability of a leader is to define reality, the last is to say thank you - and that in between the leader is a servant; in baseball and business, the needs of the team are best met when we meet the needs of an individual.
