Leadership and change begin in a room with one person and a vision. (taken from poster 27042 at maryanneradmacher.com)
People were insisting that leadership required others to lead. And I insisted that leadership begins within. You lead yourself before you lead others. That’s why I wrote this piece.
Our culture tends toward externals. Outside validation (“what do you think of me?”) consensus building, (“what do you think we should do?”) and so forth. Questions are valuable tools.
The most important questions are the ones which we first address to ourselves. What vision are you connected to today – and how will you lead that change or idea into your life?
