leadership, Nebraska


Leadership is a popular topic. It is often viewed as a mechanism with which to blame someone when matters don’t go their way. Others see it as just positions of power and self-promotion. Leadership to me is an essential skill that is developed by experience. Leadership is not a mathematical calculation with a correct answer nor a science with a data-driven set of principles. Leadership is a responsibility taken on to achieve an agreed-upon mission of a group. The membership and description of a mission varies with each group. Thus, leadership is not monolithic; some groups are very quiet while others are very visible. The absence of leadership will doom any group, and therefore it is essential to the success of any organized group. Those groups may be a country, a university, a service club, a church, a family, or a whole host of other groups.
