Robert Lefkowitz: I am kind of a Pied Piper. I would sort of bring my students and fellows along,  dream these grand dreams and schemes and this and that, and somehow get them working together with me. Because many of the techniques we invented relied on the brilliance and expertise of my students and fellows, expertise that I did not have. I had a vision and I had some expertise, but there was a lot of expertise I needed that I didn’t have. But students and fellows were excited enough by what I was doing that they wanted to join the effort. So over the years we did that. In fact, one of the fellows who worked with me in the 1980s, Brian Kobilka, who’s a professor at Stanford now, would ultimately share the Nobel Prize with me. Not for the work he did with me — although that was part of it, I think — but for work he did independently here at Stanford. And his personality and mine could not be more different. We have very different styles. So that’s another thing. You have to do it your way. General Petraeus was just now talking about leadership and leadership styles, et cetera. My leadership style is very much about being a Pied Piper. I think any leader has to be able to bring along colleagues and the people who work for them. Because if they don’t buy in, you’ve got nothing.
