Today’s episode was originally, Episode-732- Leadership and Its Role for American Survival and was originally published on August 25th, 2011.
The following are the original show notes from that episode.
No not the leadership of our vaulted elected officials, our military commanders or even your boss at work. No today I am talking about personal, family and general community level leadership.
Lee Iaccoca wrote a book called “Where Have All The Leaders Gone”, there are some shocking revelations about Cuba and Castro’s multiple attempts to work with the US in it but other than that it is basically a political piece on why we need a new leader in the White House, a real leader who knows what it means to lead.
My thought when I hear this question though, “where have all the leaders gone” turns to the average American male and to a slightly lesser degree the average American female. Where is leadership in the home, where is leadership in our neighborhoods, where is it at the ground level?
At one time the American man was the epitome of leadership, standing at the front of his family, willing to make any sacrifice and more importantly willing to make any tough decision, this has been largely replaced with an attitude of “whatever”. So what happened, how do we fix it and what is the payoff if we do.
Join me today as we discuss…
- It all started when equal rights were mixed up with equal ability
- Men must again be men and woman must realize they are not men
- Survival of our nation, culture and family unit is at stake here
- Every problem we have caused or aggravated by a leadership deficit
- Leading is not ruling, it is not dictating it is based on action
- All authority is granted, leaders must earn their authority
- All good leaders also must know how to be led
- A good leader can’t do everything and he/she knows it
- The tale of two communities of shepherds
- Great leaders must be determined, strong and compassionate
