Leadership looks weird. Leaders create what doesn’t yet exist by doing things that are not normal.
For those who like living in the normal world that exists – the behavior, ideas, and perspective of a leader –
Which is why, oftentimes, Leadership feels like loneliness. And smells like fear.
Leadership sounds like silence. Leaders allow the empty heaviness of silence to raise the authentic voice of others,
And Leaders ask questions that recognize the genius, right answer, and imagination of others.
Leadership tastes like dirt. Leaders take chances, fall flat on their face, and, With no task too lowly,
Leaders get dirty and work alongside all others.
