What is leadership? You could almost posit that there are as many styles, definitions, and types of leadership as there are leaders. The differences and varieties are nearly always distinguished by a person’s approach to the role.
For example, some theories about leadership are based on the leader’s approach to the desired goal. Some theorize that it is how the leader identifies with and approaches his followers that defines his leadership style.
Real leaders know what leadership is not. They know that being a leader is more than serving the company’s bottom line. Real leaders know that leadership is not serving their own personal interests, and jeopardizing the interests of their fellows.
Their own narrow fast track to the top is not the only path they’re concerned about. Because you can’t be a leader if you don’t have anyone to lead, real leaders know that you have to be as aware of those who are following you as you are about where you’re trying to go.
They also understand that when they make their subordinates look good, they themselves shine in the eyes of their superiors. So what better way for a leader to under gird and validate his team than to bring them together for a charitable workshop? When each member of the team is involved in helping to create, construct, and donate a gift to a deserving recipient, each person and their contributions are equally valued.
