“Leaders who don’t listen will eventually be surrounded by people who have nothing to say.” – Andy Stanley
Are you ready?
Ready for what?
I don’t know… What makes a leader?
I’m sure everyone can come up with his or her ideas for an answer to this question. But… are our ideas formed from what society thinks or from what you think? I believe that success can be equated with leadership but at what expense? Here is a thought, just because people follow you does not make you are a leader. A “leader” is so much more than directing where others should go and what they should do. Can we be a leader that puts off the “self” and puts on the “others” mentality? Leadership is sometimes hard to define but very easily recognized. The hardest question to answer is the one we have to ask ourselves, “Am I a good leader?” We can lie to ourselves but those who follow us know the truth.
As we continue to lead, the challenge is to have a more servant leader mindset. It must be about others. And at the end, everyone around will breathe a little easier.
Remember… THINK LEADERSHIP
