“Leaders don’t force people to follow—they invite them on a journey.”

We have all been taken to school lately on the subject of Leadership. What messages are you hearing that touch and stir your head, heart, and soul?

Who is speaking a future that resonates on the frequency of your vision and value?

Who is describing a journey with passion and purpose? Who is inviting you to contribute your best to a worthy mission?

When strong leaders demonstrate such qualities in words, actions, and enduring character, they engender us to follow and become leaders as well.

EXERCISE:

Where have you been called and invited on an important journey?

Where can and will you invite others in your personal or professional communities to join you in creating a better world?

  1. Hi Barry,

    This may be a longer response than you would expect. I have a presentation that I’ve made on a number of occasions; the theme is how to lead an organization through a successful transformation. First, there are five needed basic elements of change management: vision, incentive, plan, skill and resources. I argue that there are three additional key elements: trust in leadership, demonstrated leadership commitment and servant leadership.

    Would love to hear your take on this.
