My perspectives on leading are driven by my view that leadership is a platform for ‘working out’ a vision of purpose rather than a position of power or for individual promotion. Individuals may come to leadership through many distinct paths; yet, my admiration for specific leaders often aligns with those who have developed a vision of purpose, goals and demonstrate commitments to engage and serve specific individuals in service to that purpose. Such individuals pursue leadership opportunities or ‘positions’ that allow their cultivated vision to be effectively realized.
