“I believe leadership is the simple act of helping others succeed. Leadership does not come from a position. We should not confuse it with management, authority, control, or celebrity. When lots of people in an organization or society engage in active teaching and learning, the pace of productivity and innovation rises dramatically. Ethical leadership is the principle of equitably sharing the fruits of success with the people who created that success. ” Dr. Hasib
