Joe, one of our followers, sent me this link regarding a councilman from Detroit who abandoned his house because his mortgage is more than the current value of the house. One of his constituents asked the obvious question, 'why should she follow someone like this?'

Leaders need to be responsible and accountable for their decisions regardless of the consequences. When leaders behave as if it is all about them, followers can become disheartened and lose faith. It is at these times other leaders must step forward. Many people don't want to lead, especially at work. They just want to do their jobs, make money and go home. If you want to lead, look for the opportunity to lead and take it. If you really want to lead, you will do better than you think.

And remember, people are always looking to follow a true leader.

Cheers, Mike
