Leaders –an assessment profile from 6 century BC

True leaders

Are hardly known to their followers.

Next after them are the leaders

The people know and admire;

After them those they fear;

After them, those they despise.

To give no trust is to get no trust.

When the work’s done right,

With no fuss or boasting,

Ordinary people say,

‘Oh, we did it’. Lao-Tzu (6th century BC)
