Friday’s Leaderly Quote: A Lesson from Lao-Tzu

October 15, 2010

A view from my backyard this morning

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, not so good when people obey and acclaim him, worse when they despise him. But of a good leader, who talks little, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: “We did this to ourselves.”

– Lao-Tzu

Reflect on Lao-Tzu’s ancient words and how they may apply to your own work and community settings.
