Why a Leader Steps Down

According to John Baldoni (photo, left), "A leader’s legacy is a sum of pluses and minuses. Ideally, you want the pluses to outweigh the minuses so a leader retires from an organization that is thriving."

"But when you know you have done your best, there is nothing more to say. Or, as used to be said upon the death of a king, 'The king is dead, long live the king.'"
