“People work for a manager because they have 
to, but if you are perceived as a leader, they work for you because they want to. The emotional power of 
a group that is driven by ideas is often undervalued, but it is immense.

“Many young people have the qualities reqired to be a leader: ideas, the courage to stick to them, the willingness to stand by others and support them in the good and bad times. Nobody can teach you these qualities, but surely it is possible to learn how to free them when you have them in you. It is important for young people to understand that they can think autonomously, and go beyond what is taught.”
