Without buy-in, there is no leadership.
Too many leadership programs focus on the strength and power of the leader, but no where do I read a conversation about how the leader supported their crew in making the decisions that would lead to group collaboration.
I also don’t hear the stories about how modern-day leaders are followers. Historically, our religious leaders and past figureheads always spoke about who and how they followed. We forget that without following, leaders don’t have the heart to lead.
