Positional leadership …. or the boss
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.
