A word from the lead, the followers that we use in our developing followership workshop. It was written by William Ayot:
“…And in the end we follow them not because we are paid, not because we might see some advantage, not because of the things they have accomplished, not even because of the dreams they dream but simply because of who they are: the man, the woman, the leader, the boss standing up there when the wave hits the rock, passing out faith and confidence like life jackets, knowing the currents, holding the doubts, imagining the delights and terrors of every landfall: captain, pirate, and parent by turns, the bearer of our countless hopes and expectations.
We give them our trust. We give them our effort.
What we ask in return is that they stay true.”
I wish you good luck in fulfilling your aspirations.
