“You are a midwife, assisting at someone else's birth. Do good without show or fuss. Facilitate what is happening rather than what you think ought to be happening. If you must take the lead, lead so that the mother is helped, yet still free and in charge. When the baby is born, the mother will rightly say, "We did it ourselves!”
John Heider

“Knowing how polarities work, the wise leader does not push to make things happen, but allows process to unfold on its own. The leader teaches by example rather than by lecturing others on how they ought to be. The leader knows that constant interventions will block the group’s process. The leader does not insist that things come out a certain way. The wise leader does not seek a lot of money or a lot of praise. Nevertheless, there is plenty of both.”
John Heider, The Tao of Leadership: Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching Adapted for a New Age

“The wise leader does not make a show of holiness or pass out grades for good performance. That would create a climate of success and failure. Competition and jealousy follow.”
John Heider, The Tao of Leadership: Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching Adapted for a New Age
