#ThursdayThought – Leaders or Followers

Many leaders say they want leaders to work for them.

They want people to step up to take their direction.

They want people to work extra hard and extra long hours becuase that’s how they got to the top.

They want people who can just buck up, suck up, and focus on what they should be doing, and not what the leader says or does.

Many leaders say they want leaders, but in reality all they want is followers.

People who do whatever they say without question or input.

People who can stay in their lane and not speak of “what they don’t know.”

People who just focus on their work, get it done no matter what the sacrifice, and make results happen.

These leaders simply want followers, not leaders.

Great leaders make great leaders, not followers.

Great leaders and great employees know the difference and align themselves accordingly.
