I've just finished reading "Paradoxes In Leadership" by John Heider and I thought you might be interested in my summary.
I'd be very interested in what you think about these and whether you can think of any other paradoxes.
Heider notes that in many ways leadership is a paradox:
Set me a task in which I can put something of myself, and it is a task no longer, it is a joy; it is an art Quote by Bliss Carman
I am always ready to learn, but do not always like being taught Quote by Winston Churchill
