Leadership vs. Management

Involve everyone
Involve everyone and welcome great ideas from everywhere. Anyone can be a leader, just so long as they contribute, and the most meaningful way for anyone to contribute is to come up with a good idea.

There is simply nothing more important to an organization than expressing ideas and creating a vision.
