Push vs. Pull – an interesting thought and insight into leadership

I saw the blog post attached below and it brought to mind another perspective on leadership that is worth mentioning.

Consider the following directions:

  1. “Go there!”
  2. “Follow me!”

Now, which of those seems more like leadership and which one sounds like bossing? 

Independent schools have an outstanding record of student achievement.  I would argue that one factor that contributes to this success is the leadership independent school headmasters provide.  In my own experience and research, most headmasters are “out front” urging their schools to “Follow me!”
