Karin Sebelin's curator insight, November 18, 2013 8:38 AM

DO YOU FOLLOW A POSITION OR DO YOU FOLLOW WHAT THE PERSON BEHIND OFFERS YOU?

Leadership is no position – it is action, as said through the word!
Leadership – this word comes from the verb “lead” and leading means taking responsibility for other people and caring for them. Leaders take people on a journey, so to say. Positional leaders only see their point of view, their position. They try to control people. They see themselves as the boss.
They rely on their rights.

Now I may ask you:
Do you follow someone who only sees his side of view – who wants to be a leader instead of “leading” and caring for people?
Do you follow titles and positions?
Or do you follow people who are able to convince with their personal and human side and create new leaders in encouraging and supporting others?

BE SELECTIVE WHO YOU FOLLOW!

By the way: 
A good leader sees himself not as a leader!

A famous quote says:
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
(Lao Tzu)

The wonderful thing about a smile is that you always have an extra to spare. Because as soon as you give it away…Presto! You have another one just waiting to be shared.

Are you a "serving" or "self serving" leader?

How can you tell the difference between a "serving" or "self serving" leader?

We need more leaders who are willing to serve in their leadership.

Don Cloud's curator insight, October 5, 2013 5:09 AM

Great question.  That said, I would offer only those who serve their people and set them up for success are truly leaders.

 

That is, being self-serving is mutually exclusive to being a leader ... there's no such thing as a "self-serving leader" -- they are just "self-serving."

(From the article) : There two main ways in which leaders wear masks. Some conceal their perceived inadequacies and flaws behind the polished facade we have come to expect of “great” leaders, a bit like the Phantom from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s epic musical The Phantom of the Opera. Others take on a new persona at work that they feel is necessary for success, much like Jim Carrey’s character Stanley Ipkiss in the movie The Mask, who transforms into a flamboyant green superhero. Both types of mask undermine trust and effectiveness. They also create inner conflict, as leaders struggle to align their work and home lives.
