The Virtue to Lead…

By | Posted:

I just finished the 1,248th book I’ve read on leadership.  (Give or take one or ten.)  Leadership books are actually a cottage industry these days.  Too bad so many of them completely miss the mark…

There are books on grooming leaders, discovering leaders, and nurturing leaders.  Books on the irrefutable laws of leadership, the levels of leadership, and when leaders eat.  And of course thousands more on how you become a leader.  These books teach you how to define your leadership type, how to get others to follow you, and how to become a more powerful leader.  And of course how to present your leadership style in a powerful PowerPoint presentation.

But why does almost no one ask the most important question that can ever be asked about leadership?  Which is…

Are you worthy of being followed, and if people do follow you – do you have a worthwhile destination or result to lead them to?
