LEADERS VS. FOLLOWERS
When leaders make a mistake,
they say, "I was wrong."
When followers make mistakes,
they say, "It wasn't my fault."
A leader works harder than a follower
and has more time;
a follower is always "too busy"
to do what is necessary.
A leader goes through a problem;
a follower goes around it and never gets past it.
A leader makes and keeps commitments;
a follower makes and forgets promises.
A leader says, "I'm good, but not as good as I ought to be;"
a follower says, "I'm not as bad as a lot of other people."
followers just wait until it's their turn to talk.
Leaders respect those who are superior to them and tries to learn something from them;
followers resent those who are superior to them and try to find chinks in their armor.
Leaders feel responsible for more than their job;
followers say, "I only work here."
A leader says, "There ought to be a better way to do this;"
followers say, "That's the way it's always been done here."

LEADERSHIP: THE WORLD... THE GOSPEL
|Leadership according to the World:||We lead more by what we say than by listening;|
|We lead more by doing than being;|
|We lead more by making things happen than by allowing them to happen;|
|We lead more by being in control than by surrender;|
|We lead more by comparing than by accepting;|
|We lead more from the head than from the heart;|
|We lead more by external change than internal change;|
|We lead according to how others react rather than by being rooted in who we are.|
|Leadership according to the Gospel:||We lead more by listening than by what we say;|

|We lead more by accepting than by comparing;|
|We lead more from the heart than from the head;|
|We lead more by internal change than by external change;|
|We lead more by being rooted in who we are rather than according to others' reactions.|
