What often differentiates a true and effective leader STRIKEPEN BLACK from the majority of the wannabes is the willingness to stand out and shake up an organization by refusing to merely accept the way things are and have been, and insisting on evolving an organization to make it more relevant and efficient. General George Patton stated, " If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking." True leaders understand that effective leadership is about effectively listening to others, making essential observations, and taking necessary actions on a timely basis. Too many people who ascend to leadership positions surround themselves with only those who agree with them, in a situation I have come to refer to as the suck- up to leaders syndrome.
