“The ultimate leadership mantra: “How may I best serve the most people?”.Period”
Tweeted by Robin Scharma
I read this tweet yesterday and realised that our leaders, be they global or local, aren’t anywhere near that ideal.
If we look at their actions, it would appear that they are more interested in serving themselves first and everyone else second.
Should we blame them for this behaviour or our society?
The world faces seemingly insurmountable problems that seem beyond the ability of our leaders to solve.
One possible solution to our leadership vacuum is start practising leadership of self. This would have an immediate impact on everything and everyone we come into contact with.
Self leadership is difficult in that we have no one else to blame for our own failings except ourselves.
Society, the economy, our boss and a variety of factors can no longer blamed when our lives are difficult.
So we can continue complain about our leaders or we can work on our own leadership skills.
The choice as always is ours.
What do you choose?
