Leadership Is A Relationship

“…Everyone has a story to tell. And these stories are much more similar in terms of actions, behaviors, and processes than they are different. The date clearly challenge the myths that leadership is something that you find only at the highest levels of organizations and society or that it’s something reserved for only a handful of charismatic men and women. The notion that there are only a few great people who can lead others to greatness is just plain wrong…The truth is, leadership in an identifiable set of skills and abilities that are available to anyone. It is because there are so many leaders-not so few-that extraordinary things get done on a regular basis in organizations, especially in times of great uncertainty.” (The Leadership Challenge, Kouzes and Posner, 2012, pg 30)
