True leadership is not about creating followers. It’s not about bluster and braggadocio. And it’s not all about metrics, impact, and effectiveness, either.
Real leadership, as President Adams has rightly noted, is also about how one inspires others to reach beyond themselves to dream, learn and grow. True leadership doesn’t just create followers. It creates more leaders.
True success is far more than more power, prestige and money. True success must include significance. And to be significant we must live lives of active compassion. We must love others even as Christ has first loved us.
