Leadership is Getting Out of the Way

Leadership is Getting Out of the Way | Emergent Solutions with International Results | Scoop.it

Some people see leadership as being out in front. Leaders are, after all, people who lead. They set an example for other people to follow.The leaders who inspire me do not necessarily maintain a high profile. While they recognize the value of communication, they do not need to be the center of attention. They are good at getting out of the way.


Via David Hain, Ivon Prefontaine
Mindy M Walker's insight:

Too many "leaders" need to be recognized or credited for their efforts or the success of a team achievement. This is a good piece about why this isn't the the most effective way to lead.
