Are you leading from the FRONT or the BACK?

It’s like a soccer team

During its training sessions

The team skipper may lead at the front of the pack or at the back, or at the either sides…

Or even remotely, right?

And so does that, apply in all other circumstances, correct?

In the office, village meetings, police, army, hospitals, schools name it

There’s that one voice of leadership that we all venerate to, when it speaks out to us

The moment we hear this voice, we are supposed to drop everything we are doing

And listen up keenly to whatever is being passed onto us

Short of that, we stand high chances of being punished

So now, to these voices and symbols of leadership,

Are you the type that will lead the pack from the front?

The back, sides or from above?

When the waters get dangerous to swim in, where do you stand to watch out for us, from?

Do you dive with us?

Or do you take 50 steps back and away from the rest of us?

I bet by now, you know exactly where you lead from….

  1. Very thought-provoking post! I think, from experience as a mother, a nurturer, an intercessor, and an educator, I tend to be one who leads by coming alongside to help and guide others by example.


  2. Some people are meant to be a leader and some are meant to be follower. Not because the follower doesn’t have the ability, but if there is no follower, there has no leader!
