Explain the difference between having the rank of a leader and perfoming as a leader . It's not just a popularity thing.
Aaron,
The last time I gave a motivational presentation I used the following three quotes as references. They are not fire specific but they are great guide lines for every day life and leadership.

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

"I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him."
Abraham Lincoln

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit."
Aristotle

Good Luck and let us know how it goes.
Andrew
I took the Lt. exam today and I think it went pretty well! Thanks Roy and Andrew for your input.
Watch the opening scene of "Patton"
