Random Thought on Leadership

by Bill Brenner on October 11, 2010

I’ve been thinking a lot about leadership these past few days. I’ve known some good ones and some bad ones.


When you’re all about loving people and helping them along, that’s leadership.

When you’re all about power and getting people to do your bidding, that’s middle management.

I’ve been a middle manager. I’ve met some who are the salt of the Earth. But I sucked at it.

Most of the time, it’s lonely in the middle.

God bless you Bill. So glad I was able to share the experience this weekend.
I agree the best leadership comes from the most humble, most caring persons.

Thanks for deeming me one of the good ones. Leadership is all about relationships and risk management and, of course, picking your battles wisely. I miss you.
