"Lead someone to the truth and you will find that they can follow." - Epictetus
Lead or follow? It's actually not an either/or choice. We can do one or the other in various roles and circumstances or we can do both simultaneously. The essential thing is to do so with a clear motivation, intention, and aspiration.
Whether you are leading, following (or both), here are some considerations:
Leaders need followers and followers need leaders. Leadership isn't based on authority and followership isn't based on subordination. Both are active roles based on trust, shared ideas, and mutual interests.
Leaders and followers who engage on purpose create change that's worth the effort and worth paying attention to.
Where are you leading? Why are you following? When are you doing both? Is the journey serving everyone? Is the destination worth it?
