It’s always fun to read leadership quotes and hear the varying opinions on the definition of a great leader. It’s one of those concepts, in which everyone seems to have an opinion about. If you go to webster and see how they define these two words separately, here is what you get:
- Leader- A Person or thing that leads
- Great- Notable; remarkable; exceptionally outstanding:
If you combine the two you get something like: Great Leader- A noteable person or thing that is remarkle, exceptional or outstanding at leading. Although that is a “definition of a great leader” it doesn’t necessarilly communicate my definition or your definition of a great leader.
If I were to ask you to give me a definition of a great leader, we could come up with some amazing quotes, thoughts and definitions. Instead of asking for a definition, I am wanting you the BigIsTheNewSmall thinkers to define a great leader in one word. Just like there is power in a quote, there is power in one word. These words will be unique to you, how you think, who you are, what you’ve expereiced…
The Rules: Define a “Great Leader” in one word. (You can use the same word that someone else used)
I’ll go fist… Everyone please join in and who knows, you may see these words pop up in another post or somewhere else at a later date.
