Leadership is recognizing who you are...

I wrote this in 10 minutes as a tangent... It should be kept as that... A tangent, but a thought. Not even saying I do this, but what I strive to be...


We can all be leaders, but only some can lead. By this I mean that anyone can be selected to lead, but only some can be trusted to lead.  This is a different feeling.  Those that are selected to lead, gain compliance, they gain a sense of order, but there is a ceiling.  Those that are trusted to lead, well they are never quite sure they are leading.  They are not really in control.  At least they don’t want to be, they want to guide, they want to keep normal, they want to address problems, they want to push a vision, but they are not the one.  They keep the bottom up, they keep them in check to push and show the best, they got their back.  They understand the struggle, the time, the sacrifice of good work.  The leaders are out front, they have to be, they have to be the voice, the one that pushes, but also knows when to pull back.  This is hard, it is a struggle, it is a passion, a lifestyle, not a job.
