President and leadership

What makes a president a great leader?

David McCullough, the Pulitzer-winning author of Truman and John Adams, says, "The capacity to lift our sights a little higher. Somone who can call on us to make sacrifices, not promise to give us more. One who can say, I'm not going to make it easier for us. I'm going to make it harder, because we have hard things to do."

Interestingly, that's what makes a great business leader too.
