Dan Rather was happy to speak about leaders he had met, but he was modest about his own leadership wehn he spoke at Mississippi State University Tuesday night.
â€śI donâ€™t consider myself a leader, and I donâ€™t consider myself an expert on leadership,â€ť Rather said.
Before even starting his years as anchor of the â€śCBS Evening News,â€ť Rather had already interviewed such leaders as Martin Luther King, Jr., John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson. But not long after he became â€śCBS Evening Newsâ€ť anchor, he said, he realized he still had to learn humility if he wanted to be an effective leader.
