May Leaders Appear
This last week Robert Grant, Facebook marketing guru, posted the following poem on his page. He asked us to share far and wide, and I have done that within Facebook, but want to share with the rest of my friends as well.
One of the lines of the poem particularly struck me in relation to the work I have been doing with my peers in the Lead Change Group and Lead Swag: “May leaders from nowhere appear in our lives that we passionately feel the need to follow.” I have been living and teaching values based leadership for many years, often feeling as if I was hanging out there by myself. I am thrilled to have met such terrific people who think as I do and are willing to get out there and talk about character and values. I’m sure that 2011 will bring many more people into this circle, and I am looking forward to meeting them. If you are joining us for the first time, welcome! Believe in the possibilities!

May we cause less damage to the
Spirit of those around us
May we learn to listen more
And judge less
May we learn to accept those different
From us without destroying them on the way
May we learn to celebrate the success of others
And not just ours and those of our families
May we let those we do not
Understand keep their dignity
May we so easily find a word of
Encouragement for all those who cross our path
May we learn to also smile
At those who are not important to us
May leaders from nowhere appear in our lives
That we passionately feel the need to follow
May we believe, and again believe
That all the above is possible
May we not hesitate to love more
And more and more
May serenity, peace of mind
And love dwell i the hearts of each one of us
May we be there for one another
To bring upon ourselves
A peaceful year, an amazing year
A special year.
Blessings to you and years as we wind up 2010, and move into the New Year.
