"Leadership at it's core is the wellspring of an organization. If it's waters are polluted, then the organization is doomed. If it's vision is clouded, then the organization will suffer. Bad leadership is like rot at the core of an tree. The tree dies from the inside out. The tree falls. No matter how big or how long the tree has lasted, given the right circumstances it will still fall. This is true in our personal life as well as in our professional life."
