Defining Great Leadership

I've posted before about Collins' book, Good to Great, (and who hasn't honestly, the thing has been on the NYT bestseller list for a long time), and this quote below led me to back to Collins' mantra of getting the right people on the bus:

Here's a definition of leadership that has stuck with me: 

Leaders are "people who leave their footprints in their areas of passion."
(HBS Working Knowledge)

Sounds very similar to the Five Patterns book I posted on a couple of weeks ago.

And I'm back from the Labor Day road trip, 1700 miles in ~28hrs. Here are a few photo highlights, or the only crappy shots that turned out from my camera phone. Remember, though, driving across Kansas isn't usually a highlight unless you stop to see the world's largest prairie dog. Maybe next time.
