Leadership Seminar

“If you think you’re leading and no one is following you, then you’re only taking a walk.” ~ Afghan proverb

Au contraire.  A true leader must have courage-- and be willing to walk alone.
Leadership is a risky business.

"Lead, follow, or get out of the way."

This was not written by a leader, either.  Leaders don't push.  There are plenty of people in positions of power who are not leaders; they are bulldozers.

Bulldozers are pretty good at tearing things down and leveling stuff out, but they aren't much at constructing.

I'm not fond of bulldozer people, but the first two are sometimes true at the same time.

Shark, I have worked for a couple of bulldozers, but the leaders inspired me more.

Know some bulldozers. True leadership is scarce anymore. Just my opinion.

Vee, the club seems to appeal more to certain people than does the staff, or even the compass.
