Leadership, what a topic.
On this word enough
books and blogs have been written to fill an office. What can be said that has not been said time
after time? What can be added to the depth
of words spoken and written on the subject?
Leadership is fundamentally someone or ones steeping out in courage to go somewhere, to attempt something. This something does not have to be new or original. Leading is simply moving forward, striving against fear and the unknown in our own lives and encouraging others to do the same.
Leadership does not take brilliance, it takes boldness. Success might take brilliance but that is another topic. Leadership is showing up and striving. Leadership is recognizing that each step is just that, a step. And each step is a risk with its own rewards or catastrophes.
Leadership is not rocket science, which is why there are so many books on it and so few on rocket sciences. Leadership is motion, not aimless motion but intentional motion, motion with a presumed goal; an intended agenda.
So if you have somewhere to go, go. And perhaps as you go if you invite them, someone might follow.
