On Leadership and Community: Wisdom from Lao-Tzu

Lately I’ve been thinking about leadership and communities.  And in particular, how the two are so delicately intertwined.

This beautiful passage from the Tao Te Ching has been on my mind a lot.

“Learn from the people

Plan with the people

Begin with what they have

Build on what they know

Of the best leaders

When the task is accomplished

The people will remark

We have done it ourselves.”
