Reader comment on Dee Hock's passage ...

A True Leader

On Aug 16, 2008 Dr Kamlen Pillay wrote:

In its very essence, leadership does not in any form imply that there has to exist a "leader" and a "follower". A true leader is any individual that is willing to pioneer and champion a cause without the intent of receiving a reward. A Leader acts with the knowledge that his actions will benefit the majority of human beings, with a sense of altruism as opposed to personal gain. A true leader will be a bastion of hope where neither hope nor followers (for that matter) even exists. Thus seek not to lead but rather to serve and you will find that by definition, you are indeed a leader.
