Teaching and Reproducing

Leaders teach others. Whether it's in a classroom, a fraternity house, a boardroom, or a bike shop, leadership teaches

Leaders also reproduce, investing in members to the point where those in a leader's care want to lead, too. Leaders instill values and drive so that others will take the helm once a leader's time is over. Leadership reproduces. 

But, as I heard someone say last week, this reality requires a lot of a leader. Why? 

Because you teach what you know; you reproduce who you are. 

The challenge for the leader isn't just to be smart, but to be good, too.
