Recently, while whiling my life away in quarantine in hopes of prolonging it, I have done some reading about leadership that I’ve found interesting. For fun, with a point, I present the following challenge: In the following list of sayings by notable persons, which one does not belong? Can you spot it?


“Don’t find fault. Find the remedy.” — Henry Ford


“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” — John Maxwell


“The quality of a leader is reflected in the standard they set for themselves.” — Ray Kroc


“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” — John Quincy Adams


“You don’t lead by hitting people over the head. That’s assault, not leadership.” — Dwight D. Eisenhower


“You have no power at all if you don’t exercise consistent power.” — Major Owens


“Leadership is a privilege to better the lives of others. It is not an opportunity to satisfy personal greed.” — Kwai Kibaki


“I don’t take responsibility, not at all. I did everything right.” — Donald J. Trump


“Leadership is not about the next election, it’s about the next generation.” — Simon Sinek


“In fair weather, prepare for foul.” — Thomas Fuller


Can you spot the leader who doesn’t belong?
