If the most powerful thing leaders do is connect, the most dangerous is isolation.
Leaders build connections; they build trust through repeated actions. True leaders earn respect; it doesn’t come with a title or position. When leaders are clear, when they provide support, results are achieved.
There is a huge difference between leadership and authority. We serve with leaders; we fear authoritarian power. Don’t try to lead in isolation; leadership demands teamwork. Don’t try to lead through power; work to bring people together for a common purpose.
