"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

While reading the weblog of turnaround strategist Steven Feinberg, also author of 'The Advantage Makers: How Exceptional Leaders Win by Creating Opportunities Others Don't', I came across his unique definition for 'leadership':

"Leaders create advantage that encourage followers."

According to him, "followers can be customers, employees, stakeholders or even voters".

Also, "your leadership becomes obvious & irresistible when you shift the odds in their favour by producing leverage for followers".

He posed this pertinent question:

"If you are a leader, do your strategies & tactics create advantage for your employees?"

[If you haven't yet read Steven Feinberg's book, his weblog - which serves as a wonderful teaser - is a goldmine of information nuggets on 'Advantage Making'.]
