“Leaders without rank busy themselves with the business of mission and course, not might and conceit.”  (Chip Bell)

“When Leaders Cry” by Chip Bell is a thoughtful and clear description of authentic leadership, where trust is established by actions and empty symbols of power do not hold sway.

If you believe that leaders should be highly visible and clearly “marked“, you might just want to read this very useful little essay on what true leadership looks and sounds like.  If you wonder how to truly earn the respect of those you serve, you will find some direction here.

It strikes me that the message here is simply that real leaders are real human beings.
