Leadership. It seems like a very simple word that indicates a head of an operation of some sorts. There are so many different types of leaders in today’s society and plenty in the past as well. The president of the United States, CEO’s of businesses, you, me, Hitler.
Stay with me here 🙂
Good leadership is more than a title. I could have my doctorate and still waste away as a human being. Leadership is largely about influence. As weird as it does sound, Hitler was one of the greatest leaders! The way he communicated his beliefs and spread his ideals was crazy! Was it COMPLETELY WRONG, YES! But I think you know what I mean.
While everyone is a leader in some facet, there are those who are more outspoken or simply seen more. Within most schools there are typically leaders who take on the challenge of representing their school and trying to help connect, develop, and establish the school as a whole. In high school is was StuCo, here at MNU it’s ASG.
Here is a video that is too good to miss by Mr. Blake Nelson, RE of Snowbarger! It is about NSLC 2013! The National Student Leadership Conference hosted schools from all over the country, and Canada, here at MNU. A 3 day experience that I’m sure was amazing!
I leave you with a quote that changed the way I looked at leadership. “Leadership is not about revealing to others your gifts, but revealing the gifts within them.” -Joe Sailors
Leadership is not about being in front of the group as much as it is about coming alongside people and helping them develop. Leaders are the ones who stand out to help others find their fit. I encourage you to have a positive influence and seize the leadership opportunities that are awaiting at the end of your fingertips.
Keep on and Keep God!
