“The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.” — Max DePree
- Leadership is declaring a future others commit to
- Leadership is a expression of personal authority not necessarily defined by role
- Leadership is taking responsibility for what does and doesn’t happen in one’s sphere of influence
In our view all of us, at some time, need the skills of leadership. These include the ability to take a stand, declare a compelling vision, generate the mood that will support the task at hand and create celebration. All of these can be learned in our coaching, training and mentoring.
