Everybody needs either a hero or someone to look up to. A hero is someone who you can learn from, imitate, copy or mimic. None of these behaviors by itself is a bad thing. Rather by modelling your behavior and approach on someone elses approach can actually be beneficial.
Here are a few of my heroes and the reasons why.
Richard Branson The ability to never accept impossible as an option coupled with the ability to seize opportunities that other people just can't see. Awesome.
H Norman Schwarzkopf. the king of organisation. No nonsense and no mucking around. One of the truly great project managers of all time.
Hillary Clinton. A combination of skill, personality and persuasive powers make Mrs Clinton a very respected and capable leader in my boooks.
