1.“No leader sets out to be a leader. People set out to live their lives, expressing themselves fully. When that expression is of value, they become leaders. So the point is not to become a leader. The point is to become yourself, to use yourself completely – all your skills, gifts and energies – in order to make your vision manifest. You must withhold nothing. You, must, in sum, become the person you started out to be, and to enjoy the process of becoming.” Warren Bennis, Leadership Expert

「沒有領導者的出發點是成為領導者,他們的出發點只是過日子,並完全地展現自己,但當那個展現俱有價值,他們就會成為領導者。所以重點不是成為領導者,而是成為你自己,完全地運用自己 你所有的技能、天賦及能量 好讓你的願景得以實現。你必須毫無保留,你必須,簡而言之,成為你一開始就想成為的人,並享受那個成為的過程。」– 華倫.班尼斯 (領導力專家)
