Leadership is a lost art in this country. In business, government and non-profits there are too few leaders. I’m referring to people who have a vision, share that vision and then lead others to realize that vision.

John Maxwell in his book, The 360 Degree Leader, talks about the seven myths believed by those in the middle. He shares all the excuses why people who find themselves in the “middle” of a business or organization can’t or don’t want to lead.

Just because you don’t possess a fancy title or occupy a corner office or haven’t been given new responsibilities doesn’t mean you can’t be a leader. Those in the middle can lead as effectively, if not more effectively, than those at the top.

Unfortunately, as a society, we are satisfied just to follow from the middle and let someone else try that “leadership thing.”
