“We love status. We want pins and medallions on our jackets. We want power and prestige in our titles. We want to be acknowledge, recognized, and praised. It’s too bad all of those make for hollow leaders. Great teams require great teammates. Nowhere is that more true that at the top. No leader ever became worse by thinking about their teammates more.” ~ James Clear, Blog

“Love is not simply giving; it is judicious giving and judicious withholding as well.  It is judicious praising and judicious criticizing.  It is judicious arguing, struggling, confronting, urging, pushing and pulling in addition to comforting.  It is leadership.  The word ‘judicious’ means requiring judgment, and judgment requires more than instinct; it requires thoughtful and often painful decision making.” ~ Scott Peck, The Road Less Traveled

“We are incapable of loving another unless we love ourselves, just as we are incapable of teaching our children self-discipline unless we ourselves are self-disciplined.  It is actually impossible to forsake our own spiritual development in favor of someone else’s.  We cannot forsake self-discipline and at the same time be disciplined in our care for another.  We cannot be a source of strength unless we nurture our own strength.  I believe that not only do self-love and love of others go hand in hand but that ultimately they are indistinguishable.” ~ Scott Peck, The Road Less Traveled

Tribes

By Seth Godin

Tribes by Seth Godin

Buy from Amazon!

Book Overview:  The Web can do amazing things, but it can’t provide leadership. That still has to come from individuals—people just like you who have passion about something. The explosion in tribes means that anyone who wants to make a difference now has the tools at her fingertips.  If you think leadership is for other people, think again―leaders come in surprising packages. Ignore an opportunity to lead and you risk turning into a “sheepwalker”―someone who fights to protect the status quo at all costs, never asking if obedience is doing you (or your organization) any good.  Sheepwalkers don’t do very well these days.  Tribes will make you think (really think) about the opportunities for leading your fellow employees, customers, investors, believers, hobbyists, readers…. It’s not easy, but it’s easier than you probably imagine.  Click here for more info!

Tribes - we need you to lead us.

In the book Tribes by Seth Godin, he discusses the way people become leaders and how it has drastically changed over the past few years. With the power of constant connection through internet, social networks and cell phones, previous barriers have been torn down. This presents amazing opportunities for anyone to step up to the plate and lead. All you need, Godin explains, is the desire to make something happen.

With that desire, Godin argues throughout his book that your potential as a leader is only limited by your initiative. He believes not that it would be cool if you wanted to lead us, or that maybe you should lead us – he believes that we NEED you to lead us. He’s telling us that with this outstanding opportunity and this possibility that’s never been there before – YOU NEED to take action within your ‘tribe’ and lead people forward.
