Leadership: Noun or Verb

Posted on August 24, 2017 at 7:00 PM
Leadership has been an over-used word, in which some people think of it as a person or a thing. It is not a thing. It is action, or a series of actions you do with people. "Leadership is a VERB" When you think of the word leading, you have to consider that it means doing something. It means moving an idea, project, or a dream from one place to another, through the shadows and the conflicts and into the light and consumption of meaning and purpose. It takes action to effectively move thoughts, ideas, plans and obtain results, even in stages. Peter Senge once wrote: Because of our obsessions with how leaders behave and with the interactions of leaders and followers, we forget that in its essence, leadership is about learning how to shape the future. Leadership exists when people are no longer victims of circumstances but participate in CREATING new circumstances. When people operate in this domain of generative leadership, they come to a deepening understanding of how the universe actually works. that is the real gift of Leadership. It is not about positional power; it is not about accomplishments; it is ultimately not even about what we do. Leadership is about creating a domain in which human beings continually deepen their understanding of reality and become more capable of participating in the unfolding of the world. Ultimately, Leadership is about creating new realities. Great organizations, whether it is a global company serving millions of people or it is the little pizza shop down on the corner, move their people from knowing what a good job looks like to doing a good job consistently, task by task, with passion and excellence. Great organizations are dedicated to developing more than just leaders; they are dedicated to developing people who lead! Great leaders are defined by what they do, not by what they know. The presence and concept of Leadership has existed since the beginning of humankind. Through these pages we will make every effort to highlight various features of authentic leadership and how one might consider applying them in one's professional and personal life. Bear in mind that every Leadership theory known to man has an origin. The origin had and continues to have an application in the success driven life of every individual, whether conscious or instinctively. Our platform is based on learning and experimenting with various features presented through the Concentric Leadership Institute. We thank you for visiting the Revolution of Leadership in your walk with the Concentric Leadership Institute.

Presented with this blog is our Sankofa of Leadership. Leadership as an action based brand must engage in a Revolution to value it's purpose and beginnings and make them a resource for today and every future we will experience.
While many refer to a learning dichotomy mistakenly referred to as a Pedagogy, we embrace the science and application of adult and Leadership learning as the Andragogy of the 21st Century.

It is my desire as it is Dr. Wheatley's to summon us to be leaders for this time as things fall apart, to reclaim leadership as a noble profession that creates possibility and humaneness in the midst of increasing fear and turmoil.

I know it is possible for leaders to use their power and influence, their insight and compassion, to lead people back to an understanding of who we are as human beings, to create the conditions for our basic human qualities of generosity, contribution, community and love to be evoked no matter what. I know it is possible to experience grace and joy in the midst of tragedy and loss. I know it is possible to create islands of sanity in the midst of wildly disruptive seas. I know it is possible because I have worked with leaders over many years in places that knew chaos and breakdown long before this moment. And I have studied enough history to know that such leaders always arise when they are most needed. Now it's our turn.
