“Leadership is said to be everything and nothing.... Leadership is everything because it is infused in all that we do; it is not sacred. All individual behavior has leadership implications.... Leadership is nothing in the sense that it seems impossible to define completely. Decades of scientific study have yet to yield a single definition that fully captures the nature of leadership, much less articulate a definitive approach to developing it.”
