Why so many leaders are so lame by Vince Molinaro at the Globe and Mail on 26 March 2014
This article looks at why people feel “let down” by their leaders, and provides four terms that leaders must internalize before taking on a leadership role:
Leadership is a decision – make it.
Leadership is an obligation – step up.
Leadership is hard work – get tough.
Leadership is a community – connect.
I really like the first point, except leadership is not always a conscious decision. What about in times of crisis (or otherwise) – can you recall times that people started to look to you for answers, even if you weren’t the leader?
