| Overview: There is a difference between false and true leadership. False leaders are those who acquire positions of power for their own grandiose schemes and their own personal glory. History is littered with examples of false leaders from Genghis Khan to Josef Stalin to Saddam Hussein. True leaders, on the other hand, are not leaders for themselves. Instead of seeking personal gain, true leaders inspire and motivate others. They bring out the best in the team. They get people to realise their potential. They make others think they are great. True leaders create other leaders. In organisations, they build the most precious resource of all: the people that they lead.
