Lead, you lead, lead I lead, follow who?
We all think we know who (or what) a leader is, often without giving much thought to who may be the real leaders vs those who like to think they are in charge.
In social and work situations, I often amuse myself by watching and prodding those who think they may be leading. Often they are not. Unaware what happens around them, it often carries without their intervention, wisdom, 'leadership' or input.
To lead is to effect change, to manage is to ensure that what is remains so, without the wheels falling off. Some managers may have political guile, but if we don't see anything new come into play, then leaders they are not.
Leaders survive change, leaders may see change on its way and shift, to ensure survival.
So, if you a leader you are, so do you think?
