I find this also true with the exemption of natural leaders or born leaders. Those that put forth little effort to get people to follow. Whether it be their character, commitment to subordinates, or there is just something about that person. Still good leadership, I think, is about awareness. If you want to be a good leader you have to be aware of your following. I think the consensus of the population believe that to be successful they must please the leader, and not the other way around. If the leader wants to be successful they need to please their followers. Example; If a king only cared about himself how long before he is overthrown.

I believe this to be true, with the exemption of natural leaders. Those that put forth little effort to get people to follow. I will even go as far to say that good leaders have to remind themselves to be good leaders. This is an under rated art that takes practice to perfect. I believe that most of our problems in the fire service can be solved with this question in mind," How can I be a better leader than yesterday.
