Business is a game, absolutely. Those that know how to play it are at the right place at the right time and build a network of successful people around them have the best outcomes. Leadership is more than a learned skill, it is a personal characteristic. I've seen great leaders and I've seen horrible leaders. One infallible fact I have learned is that no business can succeed with weak leadership. One of my all time favorite quotes is: "Leadership is serious meddling in other people's lives." -Max DePree
