From Leadership Gold by John Maxwell
- Leadership is the ability to submerge your ego for the sake of what is best.
- Leadership is evoking in others the capacity to dream.
- Leadership is, above all, courageous.
I don’t know if many people think of leadership as courageous, but when you consider the fact that leaders often have to make tough and unpopular decisions, or make decisions based on information that is limited but all that is available at the time, there is indeed courage in those moments, and not a place where everyone would want to be. It’s not only the decision, but also the consequences, that fall on the shoulders of the leader. Cheers to good leaders!
