Leadership – Don’t Let The Good Ones Down - Dec 3, 2016 - 11:18:50 AM

Sharon-Turner.jpg
Leadership is hard. Leadership pulls and tests and many times hurts in ways those not in that position can never understand. Leaders are put on unreasonable pedestals and then quickly torn down from them at the first sign of weakness or humanity. We all have our grand opinions about what a leader should be and do, but have no idea what being in that position really entails. We are all experts in leadership though most of us have never seen the calling or office, and do not want it unless we believe it will give us power we are not fit to have. If you have a TRULY good leader (not 'good' by our warped standards of 'what is in it for me'), fight for him or her the way he or she fights for you. One of the reasons we have so many bad leaders is we keep letting the good ones down, and we let them get consumed either by our own personal issues or by the system. The bad leaders stick around and keep getting to the top because they are part of the system and their lust for power won't let them let go. If we keep blocking and failing the good ones, we will only be left and stuck with the bad ones...
