True leaders are not those who strive to be first, but those who are first to strive and give their all for the success of the team. They can be identified by the clarity of their vision, the strength of their actions, and the integrity of their intent. A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, and the courage to make tough decisions. A true leader has compassion, and is willing to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but he becomes one by the confidence that he inspires in others. He commands the respect of his peers, and is humbled by the admiration of his followers. True leaders are first to see the need, envision the plan, and empower the team for action. By the strength of the leader's commitment, the power of the team is unleashed.

hate to rain on the thread Eric but this post made me think of this dead kid I had to deal w/yesterday. I had to tell his mother the news

WEST PALM BEACH — A 20-year-old Lake Worth man died Tuesday afternoon when he crashed a motorcycle he had owned for only a week, police said.

Alfredo Valdes was speeding his 2007 Yamaha R6 on Parker Avenue just north of Forest Hill Boulevard when he crashed into the back of a Ford Econoline van driven by Carlos Chirino, 42, of West Palm Beach, officer Jim Saridakis said.



Valdes tried to pass the van, then veered back into his lane to avoid oncoming traffic, Saridakis said. The motorcycle skidded for about 80 feet as he tried to brake, the officer added.

He died instantly, Saridakis said.
