Warren Bennis once said that "the basis of leadership is the capacity of the leader to change the mindset, the framework of another person." However, in organizations, the secret to having this happen can only come when the four basic needs of life [to live, to love, to learn, and to leave a legacy] are balanced and integrated.  Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business Administration, University of Southern California
