Ann Olveri wrote this great post on her observations on leadership during an adventure she went on.
In boldness, there is magic, as Goethe said. Leadership is about stepping up, committing, knowing what really matters, and trusting our ability to find a way.
No one can become a leader without stepping up and taking responsibility. There are many leadership styles, but none canbe seen without someone being willing to lead.

I came across a post at Seth Godin’s blog that blew me away. Titled, “Responsibility” I thought it would be about another corporate trying to get out of something that went wrong, but to my suprise it was the direct opposite. Jim Davis, CEO of New Balance actually takes responsibility! Maybe their is hope corporate leaders after all, or could this just be fluke?
