Leadership won’t help you chase a bigger office or title.
Leadership won’t be impressed by the size of your bank account.
Leadership doesn’t know where you are on the organizational chart.
Leadership is indifferent to who you are, where you came from or who you know.
Leadership isn’t interested in how many social media followers you have.
Leadership doesn’t care how well you know how to work a room.
Leadership isn’t measured by the size of your contact list.
Leadership isn’t about getting it is about giving.
Leadership really isn’t about you.
It’s about them.
Leadership shows up when you give yourself away.
Less of you… is more.
- Less controlling more empowering
- Less talking more listening
- Less telling more asking
- Less doing more delegating
- Less commanding more coaching
- Less tasking more teaching
- Less pushing more guiding
- Less instructing more inspiring
- Less pride more praise
- Less plans more dreams
- Less you more them
Leadership can only fill the space that your ego has surrendered. So instead of thinking about leadership as something you get or earn, or as a title you achieve through following some recipe in a book, think about it as something you release. It’s already in you. It just needs to be given space to appear. And when it does, you will inspire others. And they will do so in turn. And that’s how you change the world.
