Inside this Book – In 1989 Melissa, then a fourth-grader in Nashville, Tennessee, became very concerned about the natural environment and the kind of world she and her friends might live in if people didn’t start paying attention to their everyday actions. After seeing a television program about pollution that portrayed a very scary future, Melissa asked the question, “Will the future be a safe place to live in when I get older?” 2 She decided she had to do something about it. That night she wrote a letter to President George Bush, Sr., asking him to help stop pollution. At the time, Melissa believed the only way to stop pollution was to get everyone involved and that the only way to get everyone involved was to get someone everyone listened to involved. For twelve weeks she didn’t hear back, but Melissa knew the pollution problem wouldn’t wait. So she started to do other things to get people’s attention. At home Melissa and her family started recycling, turning lights and faucets off when they weren’t in use, and planting trees. She wrote more letters to more politicians such as her local mayor, congressmen, and senators. She called up the local television station and did an on-camera commentary. She wrote to her newspaper. She did everything she could think of to help get people’s attention. Melissa also started a club called Kids F.A.C.E. (Kids For a Clean Environment) so that her friends, who’d been asking how they could help, could do projects together like writing letters, planting trees, and picking up litter. “We knew we were doing small things, but we also knew it took a bunch of small things to make a big difference,” she told us.
Inside this book –The Truth about Leadership PDF Book by James M. Kouzes – Leadership is a relationship between those who aspire to lead and those who choose to follow. You can’t have one without the other. Leadership strategies, tactics, skills, and practices are empty without an understanding of the fundamental dynamics of this relationship. In every relationship people have expectations of each other. Sometimes these expectations are clearly voiced, and other times they’re never discussed, but nonetheless expectations are present in every human relationship. In 1980 we became curious about what constituents expected from their leaders. Most of the leadership literature talked about what leaders expected of their followers, but we wanted to know what followers expected of their leaders. We wanted to know the values, personal traits, or characteristics people looked for and admired in someone they would be willing to follow. 1 Since that time we’ve surveyed tens of thousands of people around the world asking them to select the qualities that they most wanted in a leader. Year after year the results of our research have been striking in their regularity. And year after year they do not vary significantly by demographical, organizational, or cultural dimensions. It has become quite clear, as the data in the table below illustrates, that there are a few essential “character tests” someone (you) must pass before others are willing to grant the designation of leader.
