Welcome to Leadership


True North

The dictionary definition of “leadership” is the action of leading a group of people or an organization. But I believe the core of leadership is much more than leading people or organizations. Leadership is first leading ourselves. Leading is living by each individual’s core values. It is serving others out of the place of knowing our true selves.

My desire is to go on a journey of discovery so that I can be the best leader possible. I’d like to take that journey with you. I want to learn along with you and from you. You’re thoughts and feedback are more than welcome. If you know of a fantastic leadership blog or website, share it with me. If you or someone you know has a leadership blog and you feel you can contribute to us learning together, then jump in and do a guest blog on leadership.

I am excited to see what we will learn together!

  • I remember a story about leadership. A prominent college put out a questionnaire to all their students asking if they saw themselves as a “leader” or a “follower.” The next day, the president announced the results. The school had “2000 leaders and one follower.”

    I live my life by looking for mentors who are smarter than me, more talented than me, more educated than me and more motivated than me. And then I find to a way to provide a service to them in some way that will allow me to learn from them.

    I end up being a leader, but not because I’m trying to learn how to be a good leader. I learn it by learning how to be a good follower.
