The TEMPORARY end of the U.S. government shut-down has got moi thinking about the LACK OF LEADERSHIP in national government. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy jar’ is LEADERSHIP.

A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
Nelson Mandela

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
Lao Tzu

I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.

Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.
