Where are the leaders?
“We find ourselves in a time when leadership is sorely needed. From the chaos, confusion and rampant mediocrity that we find in our schools, churches, workplaces, families, personal lives, national politics and international relations, the same questions seem to echo: “Will somebody please lead?” “Isn’t there anybody who can fix this?” “Is there anyone who can make sense of all this?” “Is there anyone who cares enough to take responsibility for improvement here?” “Where are the leaders?” “Do heroes even exist anymore?””
Our government education system doesn’t want leaders
Chris Brady and Orrin Woodward asked those questions and studied leaders and those who study leaders and developed a leadership training manual called Launching the Leadership Revolution. They lay out a system for developing the leader within and assure that leaders are not born as leaders. They learn leadership and live as leaders. You won’t get this training in schools because schools are designed to create followers, pale shadows of the real leaders we are meant to be. Every man and woman today should be a leader; first of themselves, second of their family and when needed for their community and country.
Leaders are demeaned today
If you need evidence of the devaluation of leadership in our education, you need only look at how the leaders that created the genius of the United States have been devalued and demeaned. Our country was designed to be a country of leaders with a government to serve us. It has become a nation of sheep looking for the next meal and living at the mercy of benign oppression.
Are you a sheep or a citizen?
Sheep don’t need to learn leadership. Citizens do. Awaken your inner leader. Don’t think that you don’t have what it takes because if you can think, you can learn. And if you want to learn leadership, I don’t know a better place to start than with Launching the Leadership Revolution.
