In terms of true leadership, we have, in a sense, lost our way.

We run massive organizations, small businesses, schools, and even homes in a manner that wrests control from others in order to realize a fictional ideal of the lone chief. Putting all our faith in one individual in the hope that she will have all the answers is foolishness. If we wait for other people to effect great positive change or revolutionize a way of doing business simply because of their title, we may be waiting for an awfully long time. The best agents of revolutionary change and innovation are the people who are intimately involved with how the work gets done—whether that work is in an office, out in a field, at school, or at home. Waiting for leadership from on high is unrealistic and antiquated. It is time for us to stop playing Follow the Leader and learn to be our own leaders.
