My disarming smile will warm you.

My steady gaze will pierce you.

My ability to listen deeply will put you at ease.

You will find yourself charmed.

You will be eager to do my bidding.

Bring your shadows, vulnerabilities and fears.

'It feeds me to watch you unravel. Slowly.'

“It is always wrong to wield power if you are not prepared to accept the consequences for your actions and do the work it takes to use your strength and authority with precision and fairness. A good leader is many people's servant. If being trained to become a perfect servant sounds too humiliating, you are not strong enough to withstand the temptations of wielding power."
