authority

Do you find authority sexy?

The best seasons I've had as a leader is when I served people well. Too often we confuse an opportunity to serve with an opportunity to have authority over someone.  Your service is what defines you, your title gives you the opportunities. You can't lead through the lens of, "Am I valued?"  Leadership is serving.  Serving creates influence.  Influence impacts people.  Impacted people decide to lead. I saw this video the other day and I thought to myself, "This coach gets leadership."  His title gave him the authority to serve and influence others to make an impact.
