25 Blueprint for the Future Leadership is getting people to do what they don’t want to do to achieve what they want to achieve. Landry The separation between great organizations and mediocre organizations is the latter’s tendency to explain away the brutal facts rather than to confront the brutal facts head-on.” Collins "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit." Aristotle
