Ground Up Leadership

If you're an archetype, or a caricature.  Real life is less Lord of the Rings, however, and more Game of Thrones.

And there are no Supermen from above, on a mountain top or in an ivory tower.

The secret of leadership isn't being a superhero; it's about building communities of engagement. They, not you, will build that world.

To dominate, have an enemy.  Live in silos, tear others down.  

To be a leader, have a vision.  Be the bridge between that vision and the people around you.  Believe in both.

It's that simple.
