I read The New Art of the Leader by William A. Cohen several years ago. Here are some notes I took down that I thought I would share. All are self-explanatory except No. 4.

Seven Facts to Know Before you Lead:
1. One person can make a difference between success and failure
2. Success comes from the help of others
3. You don’t need to be a manager to be a leader
4. The Combat Model is the most basic model
5. Essence of leadership: motivate people to perform their maximum potential to achieve goals as objectives
6. Leaders are not born
7. Good leadership doesn’t depend on good deals or pleasant working conditions
