"A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don't necessarily want to go, but ought to be." Rosalynn Carter.
A great leader takes charge. A leader motivates people to do what they don't want to do. It is our job to motivate people to do what they think CAN'T be done or what they are too tired to do. It is our job to motivate their team to succeed. It is not about your title or the words you say each day. It is all about your actions and your attitude. I cannot expect someone to do something I do not partake of. Don't sit on the sidelines...get in the game.
Are you a leader that others can learn from? Be the kind of leader you want to follow.
