Defining “Leadership”


Do me a favor: Google search the phrase “what is leadership?” and tell me how many different interpretations you find. So many people want to crack the leadership code and try to interpret the word. We see so many different perspectives on leadership that some have even made it into a career. For example, Stephen Covey, John Maxwell, Tony Robbins and so many more leadership gurus are out there trying to help you find the leader within yourself. To be honest, none of them are right or wrong, according to what you decide works for your life.

The secret code to leadership is not that there is one definitive answer to what leadership is; rather, it’s what you find works for you to help you become the best you. No wonder why many say that your perception of things becomes your truth.

The goal of our “leadership” blog is not to give a one-size-fits-all approach, but rather to present universal leadership principles, and let you decide what you think is right for you!

The Modern Perspective is all about celebrating individuality and helping you live a full life, where you accomplish your goals and dreams. We know that our generation will change this world and that we are the leaders of TODAY!

Steve Jobs penned the following words for an early Apple promotion titled “Think Different”:

Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

As Mr. Jobs says, let’s push this human race forward by staying true to who we are, while striving to become the best generation of leaders this world has ever seen!

  1. I looked up the phrase ” What is leadership?” just as you asked in the first sentence. On the first page alone there were 12 or 13 different definitions and links. My definition is to be the source of righteousness and setting a great example. It is to be righteously admired and loved. it is to draw others to you because of who (how) you are, One who can teach and correct in a loving way. One who doesn’t see themselves as any greater than others, but as a servant to others. Thanks for the challenge.
