What Make a Leader

When think leadership I remember John C Maxwell. His book about leadership is inspiring me in my life. His writings open my minds about leadership.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
I also got noticed how to have great teamwork, it's not about my position in a team but about how to reach the goal together. I learn and learn. This is like a long journey for me. I believe that I should fill this life with something usefull for me and for others. From me:
A leader is person who can make everyone and everything move into the right way

Aku suka bukunya John C Maxwell. Buku terakhir yg ku baca adalah "Winning with People."

What makes a leader? Ada banyak teori. Ada banyak buku yg mengajar ttg kepemimpinan. Tapi menurut Marthin Luther, Jr.:

"If you want to be important, wonderful. If you want to be recognized, wonderful. If you want to be great, wonderful. But recognize that he who is greatest among you, shall be a servant. That's the new definition of greatness."

Kata-kata Marthin Luther bukan ide baru. KIra-kira 2000 tahun lalu, seseorang tukang kayu bernama Yesus berkata:

"...If any one would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all." (Mark 9:35)

Menjadi pemimpin hakikatnya adalah menjadi pelayan bagi semua. Selamat melayani!

Agree with Angela, leadership is about serves others :
To lead people, walk behind them (Sun Tzu).

Nice to know you :)

Hampir sama dengan buku yang aku baca, sayang aku lupa judulnya, intinya:
1. Pemimpin yang bisa dekat dengan bawahan,
2. Pemimpin yang punya kharisma
