Great leaders understand that by empowering other people, they become more powerful.

When I was a pre-teen, I absolutely devoured every Nancy Drew mystery book I could check out of the Charleston County Library or borrow from a friend.

The exotic situations in which she became involved were fascinating. She always solved the mystery, through each one's twisting, turning plot. Clue by clue.
