And I guess what sends us on those searches to pigeonhole ourselves is hope that we are as good or better than that standard. Maybe it will help us if we can be recognised as someone or something by a business leader’s standard or a spiritual leader’s values.
And this is okay, but remember that standard of wealthy and clean have often been brought into question. Perhaps standard of person who walks their dog, chatting to mums and kids on their way to school bus, or parent who can ignore tantrum of their child or lady who helps you settle into a new community by throwing a party for you, are type of leaders we might want to consider being.
Real leadership is not about striving to meet an external standard so that tick can be put in boxes under your name. Real leadership is about living with purpose – finding, defining and using your birth given gifts and bringing them to foreground in a distinctive way that changes, enhances and glorifies greater good.
Now that’s real leadership!
Good luck on your journey
