Why You’re Not A Leader

Uh oh, this feels remarkably apt for the military: Everybody thinks they’re a leader – most are far from it. The harsh reality is that we live in a world awash with wannabe leaders. As much as some don’t want to admit it, not everyone can or should become a leader.
The truth is, you have to know who you are and where your strengths lie. I’ll forgive any boss and follow him/her loyally (even if they are not a leader) provided they have a clear vision and treat their people well. Of course, I’ve followed wannabes before and tried to do damage control on the swaths of destruction they’ve left. It is not fun. . .
