Being an Effective Leader June 4, 2007

This is a quote from a friend about leadership and how we view it today.

“In our culture we under-value the concept of identity and character because we vastly over-value decision-making. We think that leadership is all about decision-making. It’s not. 99% of what we do every day is not about conscious decision making. We simply act. And we act out of who we are, out of character and identity. And so if we truly want to be women and men of impact who lead others with integrity, courage, and faithfulness, we have to be different types of people, not just better decision makers.”
