Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.

Example is leadership.
Albert Schweitzer

What do these quotes have in common?

Leaders are visionaries, mediators, advisors, guides, 
and solution makers of learning communities
