Leadership is an opportunity to serve. It is not a trumpet call to self-importance. – J. Donald Walters
When was the last time you gave consideration to the meaning of your leadership? Is it about climbing the corporate ladder? Perhaps it’s achieving a certain status or rank within your organization? These are not necessarily bad things unto themselves but in the larger meaning of leadership I submit it’s missing the point. At the heart of leadership is a desire and willingness to serve and develop others. It’s about discovering the seeds of greatness in others and doing your part to help it grow. Leadership comes with privileges and responsibilities and at its pinnacle is the realization that it’s not about you. Find the joy and meaning of true leadership by serving others.
