Getz Inspired: Leader within you

Down Syndrome occurs in one out of every 750 births in the United States; while those with Down Syndrome may be physically challenged, they often serve deep lessons for society. Take the case of Johnny the Bagger--an unforgettable story about a young man who changes the culture of a grocery store by being creative and giving the customers more than they expect.

Reminds me of a senior manager who asked me today "Are leader born or made" ? Which I return leaders are made and everyone is a leader even the cleaner lady outside. He gave me a cynical smile as what I said totally contradict to what he believes in. He believes that leader are those with title and power.

I dedicate this video clip to him.

We are all too often become so wrapped in our titles, our position and lose sight the best in other people. You don't have to be a CEO to do that. Anyone and everyone is a leader .Here are references to "the 4 natural powers" by Robin Sharma.

Natural Power # 1 -   Every one of us alive in this moment has the power to go to work each day and express the Absolute Best within us.  And you need no title to do that.
Natural Power # 2   - Every one of us alive today has the power to inspire, influence and elevate each person we meet by the gift of a great example.  And you need no title to do that.
Natural Power # 3  -  Every one of us alive with life can passionately drive positive change in the face of negative conditions. And you need no title to do that.
Natural Power # 4 -    Every one of us alive to the truth about leadership can treat all stakeholders with respect, appreciation, and kindness – and in so doing raise the organisation’s culture to best breed.  And you need no title to do that.
