You know that little voice that says "DON'!" right before you hit the send button? Uh, I'm listening to that voice a lot more lately. And I'm glad.
On an unrelated note, I've been rereading The Leadership Challenge by Kouzes & Pozner. Going through this book a few years back while on staff at VCC really changed the way I think about leading. I'd always assumed leaders were born leaders...I've adjusted my thinking to embrace the idea that leaders are made. Granted, not everyone has the same leadership potential, but a good leader can become great, and probably more importantly, a bad leader can become good - it's a matter of desire and discipline.
