“A leader is someone who has followers.”
He added, “So, if you want to be a leader, you need to do two things: (1) Pick a direction and (2) Get people to follow you.”
Simple, thought-provoking, and eye-opening, this demands that we ask ourselves: in what direction are our leaders going?
Whether we’ve chosen someone as a leader (mentor, teacher, respected celebrity, political figure … ), or we’ve been assigned a leader (our manager, our organization’s executive team … ), is that person going in a direction we want to go?
If not, why are we following them?
