  5. Here is given the best example of teamwork from Sun Tzu’s Tao of Leadership; The best leaders cannot be identified for it is the group that learns to lead itself.

It is in retrospect after measuring and looking back on your successes that one is capable of identifying and naming each members’ roles.

  6. Perfect, Ian. Thanks for sharing from the Tao of Leadership!
