Compliance will get you only 10% of another person’s energy. 90% of human energy comes from internal commitment.

Obedience to external rules is a terrible way to work, and an equally terrible way to live. If at all avoidable, it’s best to eschew it.

Commitment to internal values is the best to work and live. A true leader will always try to elicit the internal commitment from his or her team.

As I said in a previous post, a true leader doesn’t just want people to do something. A true leader wants people to want to do such thing. That can only be achieved appealing to people’s reason and will, respecting their autonomy as free agents that choose when, where and to whom they give their best.
