Landing gear down. Landing gear up.

 

The two sandhill crane leaders in front of the flock are giving off mixed messages. One has its feet up like its bugging out. The other lowers its legs like its found a spot to land. Those in back are trying to figure out the cue – coming or going?

The valley of Dormont needed leadership when Sir Alfred finally succumbed to the copious amount of delicious wine, pressed from the juicy red grapes hailing from his very own vineyards. Alfred's only child, Tivia, defied her young age and took the mantle of leadership with purpose and grace... to the delight of her subjects. Nonetheless, she will not travel the valley without her trusted guards. Because beyond the sunny hillsides of Dormont the vultures are already circling, sensing an opportunity, sharpening their claws. Little they know that Tivia will be a formidable opponent.

Everyone knows what leadership is, but few people can actually put it into words.

 

Having asked the question "What is leadership" many times, it's been rare to get the same answer twice.

 

However don't we know it when we experience it?

 

And we know what it is not. Leadership is not a job - right?

 

However aren't we all presented with opportunities for leadership - perhaps daily?

 

That means any of us can be a leader, and probably should be more often.

 

OK - I've written a book and lectured at the undergraduate level on leadership - yet a final definition accepted by all is elusive.

 

So I rely on some simple principles:

 

1) You can not be a leader without followers. Voluntary followers are the best indicator of leadership.

 

2) A good leader makes the right decision, at the right time, for the right reason. Generic I know - but still useful within your value system - which is likely different for each of us.

 

That's as far as is needed to explain the posted photo.

 

I'm posing with gorgeous Gabrielle Claiborne at a social event prior to 2020. She immediately impressed me in a variety of ways - but for the purposes of this post, it was her leadership potential that hooked me.

 

That is why I was thrilled she agreed to be a subject of my published interview - released just today. See my FB posting for details or visit www.transliving.co.uk/ to order a copy of the magazine.

 

She's an author, TED talk speaker, advisor and source of inspiration to countless people.

 

Maybe others would not agree, but I think Gabrielle will attract a good number of follows - for the right reasons.

 

I wish to give Pamela Lennon credit for inspiring this post on leadership. Truth be told - I follow her too.

 

Enjoy!

PS - In case Jenna is reading this - Yes, that is the same dress. I wonder what it would say if it could talk? Yikes!

A group of wolves & with their Leader

 

The 3 in front are old & sick, they walk in front to set the pace of the running group lest they get left behind.

 

The next 5 are the strongest & best, they are tasked to protect the front side if there is an attack.

 

The pack in the middle are always protected from any attack.

 

The 5 behind them are also among the strongest & best; they are tasked to protect the back side if there is an attack.

 

The last one is the LEADER. He ensures that no one is left behind. He keeps the pack unified and on the same path. He is always ready to run in any direction to protect & serves as the 'bodyguard' to the entire group.

 

Just in case you wanted to know what it really means to be a leader
