All that's missing is leadership.
He doesn't push; he leads.
p. 44 The essence of leadership is being aware of your fear (and seeing it in the people you wish to lead). No, it won't go away, but awareness is the key to making progress.
p. 70 Change isn't made by asking permission. Change is made by asking forgiveness, later.

p. 132 If your organization requires success before commitment, it will never have either.
Leaders make a ruckus.
