Why Leadership?

Why Leadership indeed!  This may be a question you have asked yourself plenty of times. We all have heard that employers today are looking for future employees with leadership potential - it is not enough to simply be skilled in your work. Consider what some of the most successful leaders have to say.

"The truth is that no factor makes a company admirable.  But if you were forced to pick the one that makes the most difference, you'd pick leadership." - Warren Bennis

"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more & become more,  you are a leader." - John Quincy Adams

"Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm." - Publilius Syrus

"Leaders think and talk about the solutions.  Followers think and talk about the problems." - Brian Tracy

"If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities." - Maya Angelou

"Whatever you are, be a good one." - Abraham Lincoln\

Each of these quotes hopefully inspire you to something greater.  As Abraham Lincoln says, "be a good one," means to be so good that others will follow your lead.  Develop your own leadership capacity so that you may "transform a million realities." 

Instead of asking "Why Leadership," we at the Wilks Leadership Institute challenge you to answer "Why Not Leadership?"
