"To achieve great things two things are needed; a plan and not quite enough time." - Leonard Bernstein

"Leaders must encourage their organizations to dance to forms of music yet to be heard." - Warren G. Bennis

"Leaders are needed to articulate a vision and help an organization galvanize the resources to create a preferred future, one that both inspires and motivates. Leaders bring the right people together to generate new resources, human and financial. New opportunities can then open up." (from the book)

A leader is like an orchestra conductor, setting the tempo but knowing that real music will arise only when each member is playing the appropriate instrument and the right part.

This book is for leaders and administrators in Waldorf schools, Camphill communities, farms, clinics, and other not-for-profit initiatives. The themes are broad — personal, interpersonal, and organizational — and intended to stimulate discussion and awareness in a way that promotes self-reflection that leads to both inner and professional growth. In the end, we are servant–leaders, doing what needs to be done for the sake of real human beings in our care. We need the tools and insights vital to accomplishing our highest ideals. Leadership is not just a job but also a calling.
