There are many leaders that people admire and who have influenced their leadership style. However, there is a style of leadership that does not always capture people attention and may confuse other people.
Imagine a leader who creates a team from ordinary people who were not from an elite or educated community. Consider how this style of leadership created other leaders by encouraging them to go out on their own without micro-managing them to carry a message.
This style of leadership focus on the growth of the individual, that they themselves might flourish and achieve their full potential and not primarily the growth and potential of the organization. The primary concern would be to serve their followers, and the only stipulation reviled was to share the responsibility and ownership with the people who follow, and to be mindful of their role and how it played in moving a message forward.
Leadership is an attitude, a behavior and an influence. Each one of us needs to exhibit leadership strategies in our relationships with others, in our marriages, in our workplaces, in our child rearing and in every other aspect of our lives. We should lead to serve others.
