What is leadership?

Leadership is not about your title, it is not about taking advantage of other people- your customers, competitors, it is not about your MBA, it is about how you care about yourself, your employees, your customers, your competitors, and the community within which you operate your business.

Max DePree put it this way, “The process of leading is the process of fulfilling commitments made both to persons and to the organization.”

Great leaders think less of themselves, and think more of the people they lead. As a leader, if you want people to follow you to hell, put them first. Care about them and their families. Let their concerns be your concern. Let their problems be your problem. If you do, you will be the leader your people will do anything for.
