Leadership matters. No one reading these two simple words would dispute their truth, but they may prompt questions: How much does it matter? What separates strong leadership from weak? What practices, in addition to leadership, create thriving businesses? The questions are endless.

The Federal Reserve announced in early October that household debt in the U.S. climbed $39.4 billion to a staggering $13 trillion during the second quarter of 2012. While this development could boost consumer spending and assist in the economic recovery, it means that each household in America carries roughly $114,000 in debt ($13 trillion divided by the total number of households counted in the 2010 Census).
