The Leading Blog asks, “Are you living out your why?”

Reduced to a list of techniques, leadership is uninspiring. Leadership that is uninspiring is stagnant. Eventually it will need to be replaced because all involved are just going through the
motions—doing time—atrophying. The leader is superfluous.

Techniques help us to manage the function of leadership, but they are
not the essence of leadership. Techniques don’t connect with people, passion
does. Passion inspires because it comes from inside of us. Our passion is who
we are. It’s authentic because, like leadership, it is something we live. It is
our why.

Is passion an important ingredient in leadership? Why do you want to lead? Isn't it the "why we lead" part that really builds trust and inspires others to follow? Read the rest of the Leading Blog here.
