Timeless Leadership Lessons From a Young George Washington Forbes His ability to subordinate his personal interests to the public good in all public behavior and demeanor served as examples for others to follow.” For example, Washington refused to...
What a great quote, “leadership is not about self, but about stewardship: the care and cultivation of resources not your own.” George Washington knew what it meant to lead in war and in peace. Leadership is not about you...it's about all those around you. Those you lead and those that depend on you.
Leadership Is Not a Solitary Task blogs.hbr.org (blog) We often think of leadership as a solitary task. Buying into Thomas Carlyle's “great man” theory of history, we speak of leadership in solitary and personal terms.
A leader is often the one standing by himself out in front. What may not be immediately visible is the team supporting that leader. Effective leaders have communities that support them while they are in turn supported. Leaders need peers with whom to compare ideas, receive confidential guidance and challenge their thinking. No single person has all the answers.
RHIP (Rank Has It's Privileges), a common saying in the military. In a large organization, the senior leadership is often quite removed from the bulk of the work force. The perks that come with position tend to reinforce the separation...special parking spot, executive lounge, legions of staff acting as blockers. A wise leader seeks to remove as many of those barriers as possible help him/her understand the issues in the organization. Are you parking in a reserved spot or with your employees?

Leaders aren't always the ones out front. Leadership comes in all forms and styles. Seek out the informal leaders in your organization as they often have just as much or more influence as you do. If you can get them all moving in the same direction, your job becomes easy!
There’s no such thing as work-life balance. There are work-life choices, and you make them, and they have consequences. Jack Welch
Balanced leadership requires continuous, delicate adjustments to maintain homeostasis in your organization.
Every decision you make as a leader has an impact on countless lives. This is true in combat or in business. Your employees, their families, profit margin and market share all hang in the balance based on your decisions. Choose wisely.

Entrepreneur Leading as a Servant Entrepreneur It's called Servant Leadership, and it can be applied in workplaces and homes.
A servant mindset can benefit a leader. Giving your team what it needs to accomplish the mission is critical to the success of the entire team. Guidance, resources, support and encouragement are key to servant leadership
How can a leader be a servant? Looks like a seemingly confusing connection. In a world where leadership is much associated with power, prestige and pageantry, a noteworthy departure of a rare breed is evident.
Servant Leadership can be a powerful tool. It's not the right choice for every environment, but used properly it can make an incredible difference in the morale and cohesiveness of your organization. A leader not only leads the team today but nurtures and grows the leaders of tomorrow. A successful group thinks beyond the next fiscal year or next quarterly report to the horizon and beyond.
