A New View on Leadership

“Today was exceptional in that I learned leadership is not a responsibility–nobody has to lead. It’s a gift, shining silver-that reminds people huddled nearby why each shimmering moment matters. It’s in the eyes, the voice, this swelling song that warms up from the toes and tingles with endless possibilities. Things change when you care enough to grab whatever you love, and give it everything.”

–Amanda Burr, student at the Walnut Hill School (The Art of Possibility, Zander, emphasis mine)the art of possibility

This defines leadership for me – grabbing what you love and giving it everything.  It will change everything and it will change the people around you.  You can lead from anywhere on a team, in an organization, in a family.  Only participate fully.
