Worth a Thousand Words

Leadership is the ability to respond quickly to situations including "correcting" mistakes or mis-speaks.

It is the willingness to find alternative ways to meet a singular goal, and not become beholden to "my" way.

It also shows that sometimes a picture IS worth a thousand words.
