The secret of leadership is simple: Do what you believe in. Paint a picture of the future. Go there.
People will follow.
Seth Godin published a book in 2008 called “Tribes: We Need You To Lead Us”.
Seth is one of the best business writers of the last twenty years, and Tribes is probably his best book.
Because he explains what now seems obvious:
People can be lead within any organization, at all levels; that you should find something worth believing in, and then build a tribe of like-minded people, and, most importantly, that leaders exist at all levels of an organization, not just at the very top.
If you’re ready to lead, no matter where you are, it’s time to show up. Find your people and get your show on the road.
