    Ubuntu Leadership

    So, what the heck is Ubuntu???  I am sure I cannot do the definition justice here as it has been stated much  more eloquently by Archbishop Tutu and President Mandela; however we define it as the process of seeing the humanity in others in order to see the humanity in self.  We hope that by the time our clients finish one of our programs they have such a solid sense of self and purpose that they understand the place of compassion and forgiveness in leadership.  Thus, from this place, truly enlightened leadership can transpire.  And, one does not have to be a president of archbishop to attain this level of leadership.  Becoming self aware and then determining a value-guided leadership path are the start that is needed in order to arrive at your destination.

    The Deeper Leadership Institute


    Leaders and Followers

    I continue to get amazing inspiration from both the CTI list-serv and the participants from the Intl Ledership Assn!  The latest discussion I have been following and participating in is one about whether we need followers in order to avoid chaos?

    As you probably know, we at the Deeper Leadership Institute maintain that we are all leaders.  So, that premise begets the question:  can one be both a leader and a follower?  And/or is it necessary to have followers?  And/or can we all be leaders and be co-leaders?  If the last scenario is plausible, I can see the case made for chaos; but if we are all co-leading around an established stake, then do we need followers or can we all co-lead? 

    Let's hear from you!
