Popular culture can be misleading when it comes to the topic of leadership: unintentionally, we can begin to equate leadership with power, with your social media following, with your influence or bank account or your job title.
On this day, we at the Center for Values-Driven Leadership challenge you to remember that while power, titles, and money may be results of leadership, they are not leadership themselves. To lead is to take responsibility for others, and to move, in tandem, toward a direction of purpose and meaning. We are humbled by the example Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. set for us in this, and challenge you to consider his words as you invest in your own leadership journey.
If you share this vision of leadership, we invite you to connect with us. Leave your own favorite King quote in the comments section below, or visit this page to tell us about your interest in leadership, ethics, and corporate responsibility.
