“Dreams Soon Become Inevitable”

 

“Before you can lead others, before you can help others, you have to discover yourself.   Today a leader can’t impose himself on others.   He makes himself available to others.   And nothing is more powerful than someone who knows who they are.   The traditional view of leadership talks about leadership as a package, but it looks at the outside of the package.   I’m talking about starting with what’s inside the package.”      (Joe Jaworski,  Synchronicity)

 

“It’s one of the characteristics of a leader that he not doubt, for one moment, the capacity of the people he’s leading to realize whatever he’s dreaming.”    (Benjamin Zander, TED –  Ideas Worth Spreading)

 

“So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.”    (Christopher Reeve, aka ‘Superman’)

 

Think back on the leaders you have worked for or know of.   What do you believe made them a success?   Those that were successful knew themselves well – strengths and weaknesses, believed in their mission and trusted, cared about and had deep confidence in the people they ‘served.’    ‘Servant leadership’ – successful leaders ‘served’ the people who reported to them.  As a result, the leaders’, no wait …, the teams’ dreams became inevitable.    Be a ‘servant leader’ and make dreams come true.       ~  GMUniverse
