Sometimes leaders think that someone who disagrees isn’t a leader.
But this isn’t true.
You and I can both be on a hike together.
We can both be responsible for getting this small group to our destination.
We can both show up as leaders.
But if one of us wants to go to a different spot, then we’re no longer on the same journey.
We are leading but not together.
This doesn’t mean I’m a leader and you aren’t.
It doesn’t mean if I don’t convince you to follow me I’m not a leader and you are.
Two leaders can lead powerfully and still go different ways.
If you’ve got a great leader on your team.
But they have a different direction.
Get clear on what it is.
Inspire them to lead.
Even if that means it leads them out of your team.
