Laura referenced the following poem that serves as inspiration for her in her work with clients:
A Leader by Lao Tzu
A leader is best when people hardly know he exists;
Not so good when people obey and acclaim him;
Worst when they despise him.
But of a good leader who talks little,
When his work is done, his aim fulfilled,
They will say, “We did it ourselves.”
The less a leader does and says,
The happier his people;
The more he struts and brags,
The sorrier his people;
[Therefore,] a sensible man says:
If I keep from meddling with people, they take care of themselves.
If I keep from preaching at people, they improve themselves.
If I keep from imposing on people, they become themselves.
