Leadership in a Nutshell: Politician vs. Statesman

by Miki Saxon



Politicians talk it — Statesmen walk it

Politicians run to win — Statesmen run to serve

Politicians are ideologues — Statesmen are open-minded

Politicians, “it’s all about me” — Statesmen, “it’s all about them”

Politicians focus on the next election — Statesmen focus on the future

What would you add to this list?

    A Statesman leads from in front of the people – A politician tries to influence and pander behind-the-scenes

    Statesmen do what’s right and correct – Politicians do what is expediant and popular

    Those who can’t commit, committie
