|Leadership: Force & Conflict|
The leader who understands how process unfolds uses as little force as possible and runs the group without pressuring people.
The wise leader runs the group without fighting to have things a certain way. The leader's touch is light. The leader neither defends nor attacks.
Remember that consciousness, not selfishness, is both the means of teaching and the teaching itself.
Group members will challenge the ego of one who leads egocentrically. But one who leads selflessly and harmoniously will grow and endure.
The Tao of Leadership. by Lao Tsu
