Leaders Produce HOPE





“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.”~~Lord Action 1887

One of the most famous quotes about power, Lord Action points out one of the biggest struggles in leadership; power. A test to find a great leader is whether or not he can voluntarily step away from leadership and its power for the better of the team.

Most people see leadership as way to their personal gain, but a great leader sees it as a way to everyone’s gain. The surprising result of putting the team first is the additional power and trust you gain from them.

It is about discovering, not being discovered. We seek so much to be discovered and though we forget lose one whole dimension of life, the joy of discovering with others. It is through this collaboration that growth, learning, and friendship is created. All of these are so much deeper than being recognized.

Thanks, my COOL friend, for being such a great leader sharing your expertise. DD#2 especially enjoyed the owl pallet experiment tremendously last Friday at your lovely home. She would've loved it to stay for the day exploring the pallets than going to the park.(visit here for more photos.)
