RM: The most debated question regarding leadership is..."Are leaders born or made?" How do you answer that question?
RM: So you’re saying leadership is about making a choice?
RM: Let’s talk about reflection. You are puzzled that too few of us use the power of reflection to bring greater things to our lives. What do you say to the leader who is believes he/she is too busy to reflect?
RM: Chapter 15 is one of my favorite sections in the book. In this chapter you discuss the importance of leaders managing projects and processes successfully. One complaint I often hear in project review meetings is, "why are we doing this?" From your experiences, what can leaders do to create clear visions and gain buy-in from the team?
RM: Before we wrap up, I have one final question. Who wins the Big Ten Football Championship next season…Ohio State or your alma mater -the Purdue Boilermakers?
