We mistakenly think that being a leader means that we’re able to get everyone on the same page, all pulling in the same direction at the same time.
But that’s simply not true. We’ll never be able to convince everyone that one way is the best.
Being a leader means trying to do something different. It means trying to do something that we think is going to be better than how it’s done now. It means trying to do something that may or may not work out like we hope.
And it means doing things even though some people are going to be in favor of maintaining the status quo.
Being a good leader means that we’re able to get things done, and move things forward, even though we’re faced with resistance. That resistance may come from others, or it may come from within.
A good leader leads, regardless.
