Absolute leadership

Viewed 1606 times 2018-1-23 02:37 |System category:Life| leadership, books, politics, author

I just read President Xi's latest mantra on China's ruling government and its focus on 'absolute leadership'.

I applaud his vision and efforts in creating an undivided goal. It's always easier said than done, and the challenge is really to balance absoluteness with humanity. Humans have emotions, thoughts, desires, fears, weaknesses etc. Unless you are a robot void of all of the just mentioned.

When I was entrusted with the role of a team leader with American Express, the first book I bought was John C Maxwell's book on Servant Leadership.

The best leader is one that sees himself or herself as in a position to serve the people, not the other way round.

A boss demands to be served whereas a leader aims to serve. Know the difference.

One is a tyrant while the other is an enabler.
