“Leadership, like swimming, cannot be learned by reading about it.”  Henry Mintzberg

Leadership can be studied as a subject.  You can read about it.  But you don’t learn to lead by reading.  You learn by leading, by taking risks, striking out in a particular direction and noticing others are following you.  And you fail too.  Or you fail to meet expectations.  You learn leadership this way, when you try and fail and then try again and don’t give up.
