LE– Leaders are everywhere
I'd like to share with you something interesting I read about leadership today, its something obvious but I found out it quite interesting. This is how a Navy commancder describes leadership....
The USS San Antonio stands 694 feet long, 105 feet wide, 13 stories tall and 25,000 tonnes and can be quite intimidating to us but not to Commander Brad Lee, a 40 year old officer from the Navy. He is responsible for approximately 400 soldiers, twice as many Marines, numerous smaller vessels, fighter aircrafts and vehicles and also the tactical support team for the marine Air Ground Task Force. For him “Every sailor is important and success is never a one-man mission”. According to Lee, leadership is about making a difference to the lives of the others and the society. It’s about having love and passion for what you do while trying to create a better world to live in.
Most of us when we think of leaders, we tend to think about historical figures and “big names”, however Leaders like Brad Lee are make difference in their own ways. Leadership can be applied anywhere, in any organisation in any organisation and at any scale. In our individual way we can contribute towards our society by leading some kind of change.
