Lead or Be Led
by Chris Makell - Feb, 2009
It’s a well worn line in the history of business…you either lead or be led. But you and I both know that leadership has so many levels, angles and dimensions. Today you can lead, tomorrow - led. So as a leader, you are called upon to lead, daily. It is part of who you are. You are providing teams and colleagues with direction, advice and guidance. You create policy and set the tone.

One of my favorite clients shared, recently, that she was so appreciative of having a boss who walked his talk and was a leader everyone respected and enjoyed working for. “It’s the little things people notice and appreciate about him,” she explained.
