A Leader is a Tough Act to Follow

It snowed six inches at my house on the morning I was to speak at Snow College, which received no precipitation. Ironic.The business department at this Ephraim campus asked me to speak about leadership qualities. Also ironic. I do spend my time interviewing and studying leaders, but I certainly don’t consider myself to be the leader of any pack.A leader keeps a clean desk. A leader works far in advance as to avoid any last-minute stress or frustration. A leader only takes on what she can handle and turns away opportunities when her plate is full.I’m no leader.But I did enjoy thinking about leadership and presenting what I’ve learned after interviewing successful leaders the past 10 years. I guess you could say I’m more of a follower.
