"Man cannot live on bread alone, he must have peanut butter (James A. Garfield)!" Similarly (though less funny) leadership does not stand alone, it must get results, and that means achieving well formulated goals. By definition, a destination is inherent and you MUST know where your are going or, as oft quoted Yogi says, "If you don't know where you're going, any path will get you there."
Hundreds of books have been written about leadership with much good advice. However, with 7 Laws, 9 Essentials, or 5 Rules it's time for a time out!
Practicing behavioral leadership without a goal is like drilling for a football game only to find out you're playing basketball. It makes a difference.
