On Leadership

We don’t need a title to lead.

We do need to lead ourselves in order to, or before we can, effectively, lead others on a project, in a startup, or to fulfill an important government agency mission.

Think about that for a moment.

To attract followers to take our lead we must show them that we are living a life that is in balance, that is genuine, and that is meaningful.

We are the walking models of what we preach.

So I say, “by focusing in, we can lead out.” I call it,

Begin With Ourselves in Mindand “Be the Leader You Wish to See.

By getting our own lives in alignment, by leading ourselves on our own personal leadership journey, we can become more effective leaders elsewhere—the kind that others wish to follow.
