#ThursdayThought – Leader Does Not Mean Better
A leader usually has the following qualities:
A leader does not mean that that individual is a better person than everyone else. They are only a person with more of something, not better.
Most leaders have these that bring them back to earth:
- More failures
- More worries
- More responsibilities
- More pressure
- More people affected by their leadership if they err
Is it no wonder that the most influential leaders across history have been servant leaders who see themselves as not better, but a role model and example, an inspiration, a source of confidence that the people who follow them feel safe by them.
Leaders are not better unless they make their people better as a whole.
