The Leader is You!

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I was looking for a song to sing
I searched for a Leader, But The Leader was me – John Legend, If You’re Out there!

We have a new leader today.Well the results are out and more than ever I pray that the victorious candidate becomes a Force for Good and not for evil. Keeping America in my prayers for what happens in America does not stay in America. It affects the world.

leader-is-youYes, America’s People have chosen a new President of the United States of America. The job of the President is to serve and protect ALL the citizens of that great country. It’s a big job. Can you imagine the stress?

The hardest part for me to conceptualize is trying to please and represent everyone. In a nation with hundreds of millions of people with differing viewpoints and opinions, how is that even possible?

I’ll tell you the truth. It’s not.

But here’s an even better question: Why should we, as citizens, leave it up to someone else to make us happy? Why should we sit back and hope someone else will protect us and make our lives better?

There’s another leader I want to talk about today. And that leader is you.Regardless of who sits in the oval office, the simple fact remains: you are the most qualified person to create the change you seek.

And in the history of any country in the world, it’s never been easier to make your own change.

Gandhi did it, Mother Teresa did it… just starting where they were. Using their intellect, their heart and sound practicality in motion to drive change from where they stood.

No fan fare, no millions invested in expensive campaigns to convince others of their suitability, nothing. Just good old fashioned action and making a difference with dignity and compassion.

It’s time to make a change. It’s time to be your own leader.

And where there are true Leaders walking amongst us not wearing designer clothes, not being covered by the news, not in ivory towers and White Houses, but simply making a powerful difference and adding value, there is Hope!

I heard this song, If You’re Out there,  by John Legend when I was out on a Leadership Mission to Guatemala in 2013 and it has echoed in the hallways of my heart ever since!

Stop Looking for a Leader, For the Leader is YOU! 

Rise America!

God Bless America!

We are a country where people of all backgrounds, all nations of origin, all languages, all religions, all races, can make a home. America was built by immigrants. Hillary Clinton

On the eve of the Final Day of the 2016 Election Campaign, I would like to extend my prayers and Good wishes to all my friends in the U.S. for a peaceful outcome.

god-bless-america-nov-7th-2016In all honesty I am not sure if this is a case of “Let the best man or woman win” and sit back passively and watch how it all plays out for the next 4 years.

Neither candidate appears to be  individually people of Outstanding moral character (if the media are to be believed) .

And clearly, there are the obvious Pro’s and Cons to each choice.

More than ever, America stands at a crossroads , caught in the middle of some really dirty Politics and at risk of being tainted by one of the most disgusting Elections in history. Neither candidate a gentleman or a Lady.

Boss or Leader?

Leadership is Service, Not Position – Tim Fargo

William had been newly appointed to the position of leading a team, of which he had previously been a part. As a technical expert, people often looked up to him for support and to help find solutions to problems. A gentle, intelligent person, William doubted his ability to lead and was very nervous about how he might be perceived by his peers. Unfortunately he was being mentored by his Boss who had no idea how a true leader leads his people.

He was told to distance himself from the team he led, so people would respect his new “position” and he was told to be ruthless in his stance of demanding excellence regardless of what excuses were presented. Much though it went against the grain, William took this advice and gradually started to change from a  helpful much loved person to someone to be feared.

With time, however, as he began to  see every relationship he had built break down and people begin to resist and avoid his new found “Leadership” style, he began to reflect on what really worked for him that was consistent with his original gentle approach and discovered he was able to not only get better results from his team, but that he was also beginning to grow and feel happier. His Boss of course was not happy with him, despite the improved team results and eventually William left the company for fresh professional pastures.

How often do our careers get interrupted by the wrong examples and advice? Here are a few tips to recognize the difference between a being a Boss and being a Leader! Read More→
