As I got to the end of this I had a clear thought that we mostly look at "the best leaders" as those who made enormous amounts of $$. I mean I guess they changed the world too. Some of that for good I guess.

Wish we'd rate them against who changed the most lives for the better. Who did the most good.

Good thoughts today, Jeff.

Striving to be be like Carnegie, Jobs or Coors - or any leader for that matter - is just a setup for disappointment. People fail us.

The encouragement to venerate great leadership behaviors (and not people) will always be a better approach.
