The leadership test

What is it we are questing for? It is the fulfilment of that which is potential in each of us. Questing for it is not an ego trip; it is an adventure to bring into fulfilment your gift to the world, which is yourself.*
(Joseph Campbell)

Everybody needs to stand for something. Something that matters. That’s what real leadership means. Not a rank, not a job title, not a diploma.  But a decision inside us.**
(Hugh Macleod)

There are as many different kinds of leaders as there are people. When we lead ourselves well then we’ll make a difference when we get to lead something or someone beyond the self.

(*From Joseph Campbell’s The Hero’s Journey.)
