Ann Mulcahy, CEO of Xerox, was interviewed by a reporter from the NY Times. She made a number of good points including these on leadership.

She points out that not everyone is created equal when it comes to leadership. Some people are more advanced as leaders than others. It is important for leaders to identify those that have the talent to become leaders in the organization. She continues by saying that those people should be trained differently, compensated more and given more and a wider array of experiences.

She also said that "creating followship" is the most important thing that a leader can do. As Gail and I often say, "turn around and see if you have any followers, not those who have to be there. Look for those who could be anywhere and they choose to follow you."

Cheers, Mike
