It would be nice if leadership was always a team effort, organic, creative, serving and consensus.
Then there are times when leadership is what is is perceived to be, one person paving the way for others.
Unfortunately, no matter how hard we try, there will always be those that see your leadership style like this.
I am a young leader, always learning and striving to be the best person I can be so that I can lead by example. I may not be a perfect leader, but I am self aware enough to know where I can improve. Not at all to sound ego centric, but I wouldn't mind being lead by someone like me. I think overall I do a good job and the reason why I think I do, is because I try to "Be the Solution" and stay open to wonderful ideas to achieve success... even if it is not something I would've come up with for myself.
Really, my mentor, my hero and the person I aspire to be when I too reach 800+ years old.
Words to live by:
“Do or do not... there is no try.”
“Luke: What's in there? Yoda: Only what you take with you.”
“[Luke:] I can’t believe it. [Yoda:] That is why you fail.”
“Named must your fear be before banish it you can.”
