I don’t know how my response came about, but I know I was being honest. I truly believe that to be a real leader, one must be a servant. They must serve.
I initially wrote a long post on this. But then I decided to delete it, as the writing was becoming cluttered and unclear. I have said what I wanted to say. To try to explain and prolong it would only diffuse the message.
To lead, one must serve. To lead, one must follow. To lead, one must listen. To lead, one must humble oneself before whatever or whoever one is serving. To lead, one must love. In a way, to lead one must not think of leading or think of oneself as a leader (too much).
Perhaps all those leadership fora or trainings need to rethink their position and shift their direction to that of servitude and humility.
To be. Good and proper. Devout. In alignment. Salih. Amen.
