Leadership – If not now, when? | Reinvent Your Leadership | Scoop.it
The writing is on the wall.  Senseless wars, self-absorbed employees, greedy bosses, financial woes and social ills…some days, it feels like there are more problems than solutions, and no leaders stepping up to solve them.

Leading is a simple act of human decency.  Deciding to lead...that's where the rubber meets the road.  What will you decide?

Time to understand our role in conflict and how to lead away from it.   Great post Maya Mathias, it does start with everyone of us.

donhornsby's curator insight, December 30, 2012 4:11 AM

(From the article): Think back to a time when you got worked up about a lack of leadership.  It could be at work, in your community or your country.  What fired you up?

 

And if it DIDN’T ignite any strong feelings in you, why not?  Are you content to live the rest of your life standing for…nothing?  What do you want your legacy to be when you die?  Again, there’s no judgement either way.  I’m just asking the question.

Leaders nod with knowing smiles when you say leading is about relationships.  But, faces go blank and heads stop nodding when you ask, “What are you doing to connect with people inside your organization?” It gets worse when you ask, “What are you doing to help people connect with each other?”
