Dark knight in the Marearka project.
We had a meeting today with the whole company. The main invitee was a wockey coach that brought the Junior team Canada to the gold medal in the world junior championship.
He was there to tell us about working in a team and about leadership. I love working as a team, but I must confess I never had thought much about leadership. Leadership I believe forges itself in a person with a personality that makes him or her attractive to other people.
It is not something you can acquire easily, it is something partly genetic in the sense that it is thought from your parents and relatives as you grow. It is also greatly fashionned from your experiences in life. It is true however that you can acquire some.
The guy today was telling us how to be leader. Not anyone can be one I thought, otherwise, who would be there to follow?
The existence of a leader directly depends on the people following. Without them, the leader is no more. In a way then, the leader depends on his or her followers. As soon as they start disliking the leader, the leader is no more. That's how the leader is led by his followers into being flawless. The leader leads the followers, and they in return lead the leader.
That's when the true questin comes in. Which kind of leader are you? Me? A neutral leader.
I love to obey and follow a good leader just like I to bring down a bad one. (which I only had to do once thankfully.) I will be a leader though, when the time is right. For now? Learn. It is the best way to achieve goals. I know I have talent and good ideas, the recollection will come in due time.
That's why communications are important. Team work too.
