Leadership equates to ownership ...

How can you lead something unless you take full ownership of it. Equally, there is no ownership of a project, opportunity or experience unless you take on some form of leadership.

In my biased opinion, the success of anything in commerce, entrepreneurship or education comes from a delicate combination of the two. In reality one cannot come without the other.

So, it is sad to see an inheritance I left to another, 5.5 years ago; something that was running at its peak with a strong throughput of students. Recognition, status and three awards to its name now a shambling husk of its former glory.

Someone wanted the kudos but did not seem to understand how to own this; often talking a good war, they never served up the strategic thinking.

Equally, looking at a local college, it was in a very healthy state back in 2005, by 2008 it was beginning to creak, now in 2014 it is being investigated. The key factor, change of leadership and different ideas of ownership.
