“If you think you’re a leader, look behind you. If there’s no one there, you’re just a man taking a walk.”
I think “lead” is something you can choose to do when circumstances call for it. But it’s not a job title or a status.
I think we should simply be doers. React the right way. Live courageously. Pursue great visions. Act with integrity. Serve others. Bring ideas to life. And let our status speak for itself.
Is this simply an over-reaction to the heavy leadership emphasis in recent years? Is “leader” a legitimate title?
Or, in our attempt to correct a lack of leadership, have we abused and overused it?
