Were You Born To Lead?

Matrix Formation

Explaining leadership to someone who does not
Have an idea what it is isn’t easy.
It’s like trying to explain love to someone who
Has never been in love. It’s a hard thing to do.
Definitions found in every dictionary
All include the word ‘lead’ which does not help a lot.

Many leadership styles therefore tend to exist
Which suggests it’s a personal choice to define
What it is for oneself when in that position.
One defines for oneself what the leader’s mission
Is to be. With that one is able to align.
The temptation to shy away one must resist.

Most leaders are there to see those around them rise.
If you want people to be honest about their
Shortcomings then you have to be honest about
Your own faults. Be empathic in working things out.
The best leaders show others that they truly care
About those in their team. This is loving and wise.

How you respond when things go wrong is important.
You can be condescending or you can just say,
“How are we going to fix this? What can I do
To support you in this effort?”
They’ll respect you.

You’ll encourage love and honesty in this way.
Good leaders have the ability to enchant.
