“Each is a leader is an actor of change as advocate, adversary or neutral emissary leading to a result of short-term gain with long-term continuous impact. The role of the actor is to determine on what side of leadership you fall for years to come.”
Leader is used often as a lofty term for a supreme being able to amass some level of followership. When leadership is cast outside the reach of the individual it implies that one other than myself is to be that divine presence. The ability is to understand the fluidity of leadership on a continuum that at points in time each individual is a leader called to a duty.
In this point of time a decision is made to lead on the side as an advocate, adversary or neutral actor. It is at the time when leadership is called that the individual has the opportunity to lead at accounting for age, gender, race, economics, education and environment. Leadership is choice chosen when the call is made, heard and accepted.
