What I believe about leadership

I believe:

*leaders listen
*leaders are learners
*leaders trust others

In Margret Wheatley's book, "Finding our Way", the reader is given a glimpse into the "new story". There is possibility for true organizational change. There is possibility for life giving organizations to thrive and be. The step for people who pioneer new ways of leading and organizing in this uncertain time of change, will lead to much failure in the eyes of society. The people paving the way may not ever find financial success or material security. However, what they will find is a new way.

The new way is only possible when the dream is realized. We all started with a dream, most of us left that dream once we realized it was self serving and impossible in our own resources. When the ceiling falls out on the perspective of what is to come and things are not as they seem. When an person realizes they got what they wanted and it is not as they thought. Hopelessness fill the bones and atrophy occurs. The breakdown of sells and structure begin. The created starts to die and can no longer co create. We are left lifeless, hopeless, and dreamless.

I say let the dreamer speak,
Let them hold their head high in the face of reality.
A reality void of meaning and purpose.
A reality build for people unwilling to dream.

Raise your voice and speak softly to the seams of society.
Work in the cracks of system which have ceased to have meaning.
there is a shifting in the sand, there is a collision of matter.
People are looking for answers and way to freedom.

We must look inside ourselves and be honest.
"I do not have what it takes"
But I will believe any way.

I will believe in the possibility of freedom.
I will believe in the hope of a savior.
I will believe in a God who loves all.
I will believe in a future.

Most of all I believe in you.
