Abstract

Ralph Waldo Emerson observed that "consistency was the hobgoblin of little minds" and that insight well underscores the challenges associated with accurately describing the leadership philosophy (and actions) of anyone - from coaches like John Wooden, leadership gurus like Steve Covey and Peter Drucker, philosophers like Aristotle and Socrates, or you and me. They are not always perfectly consistent, evolving, and even changing as situations and setting shift in both anticipated and unpredictable ways.
