Whether to lead or to follow is sometimes a choice we need to make, or so it appears.
In fact, just being present may be the best option—not having need of the situation either way.
Connect that with something else and it all makes sense…
It’s often said that when intervening in a situation, it’s the inner state of the intervener which makes the difference, not so much what the say or do—much more who they are. In other words, we pay attention to highly “present” people.
And so obviously…
Those highly present people are the ones we are influenced by. The ones we follow, in fact—the leaders we look to.
Those who have let go of the need to lead or to follow are the real leaders.
