"Leadership is a relationship. It's a relationship between those who aspire to lead and those who choose to follow. Whether the relationship is with one or many, leadership requires engaging others. No matter how much formal power and authority our positions give us, we'll only leave a lasting legacy if others want to be in that relationship with us."
-Handbook for Developing Emotional and Social Intelligence: Best Practices; pg XII
