Something for those who are leaders.

Where are we going, exactly?

Where are we going, exactly?

This is just a bit of fun for the summer ……or is it?

I have known this short poem by Roger McGough for years, and have just rediscovered it.

For me, it sums up so much about the ambitions, aspirations and doubts, just below the surface of a few leaders with whom I have worked.

It also strikes an occasional chord with my own experiences when leading others through difficult transitions.

So, for all existing and wannabe leaders out there, here it is.

The Leader

I wanna be the leader
I wanna be the leader
Can I be the leader?
Can I? I can?
Promise? Promise?
Yippee I’m the leader
I’m the leader

OK what shall we do?

by Roger McGough

Now be honest, does it strike a chord with you too?

Have a great week.
