Always keep the subjective reality framework in mind.
Working on your own leadership skills does nothing to objectively improve President Bush's leadership abilities...he's not consciously aware of you.
Working on your own leadership skills CAN shift your perspective on the meaning of quality leadership,
which has the power to change your opinion of others' leadership abilities.
(That certainly doesn't mean that your opinion of another's skills will necessarily improve either!)
