Look back on your own experience with leadership and ask yourself the question:  “Who had the greatest impact on the organizations and teams in which I have had a part?”

Start by thinking about all of the leaders you have known and admired.  Then pick the one who really stands out from the rest, and write down what you saw, heard, and felt about the way they led.  Yes, write it down.

Now, what do you see?  Perhaps what you see is a great place to start your own leadership journey.

Too many leaders act as if the sheep… their people… are there for the benefit of the shepherd, not that the shepherd has responsibility for the sheep.  (Ken Blanchard)
