I don’t believe we can continue to rely on a few good leaders and many good followers. I have taken the term follower out of my vocabulary as I don’t think there is a great need to learn how to be a follower. What we need are many people who consider themselves leaders, who know when and how to step into the leadership role, share authority and accountability, express their perspective on what is needed and move forward to meet that need. We need to learn how to act together as leaders, how to respect leadership authority regardless of someone’s title or position, how to grant authority to those willing to serve as leaders, regardless of their age, gender, and ethnicity. Our democratic system is dependent on shared leadership and the complexity of our world demands this. I don’t believe we can succeed in addressing the many challenges we face and build resilient communities until we first master the ability to share leadership.
