I have always been fascinated with political leaders like Hosni Mubarak. He was the President of Egypt for 30 years from 1981 to 2011. He started as a military officer with an aspiration to lift Egypt out of economic doldrums and became an international statesman, a trusted Western ally.
A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.
