Leaders that care

We meet a lot of leaders everyday. However, not all can move us. According to John Maxwell, it's not so much about what our leaders know, how intelligent they are. What matters most is how much they care, about our needs, dreams, and desires.

These are the people who will not consider tampering the environment or ecosystem they are entering in. They will focus on fulfilling what the stakeholders want, tapping the strength of current leaders, rather than what they want to achieve for themselves, disregarding the initial work put in.

This is also the reason why there are leaders who don't carry any official title or position but commands so much respect and following from the communities where they belong or serve. True leaders, despite the absence of any official title or position, can still do great things because of their passion and determination to make a difference.
