``
  • Lead From Behind.
``

There are two types of leadership. Leading from in front, and leading from behind.

The former is the most common and leads to participants having pride for their leader, and having taken part in the leader’s program. This leader impacts those in their activity, allowing for the spotlight to shine upon themselves.

The second leader leads from behind, meaning no spotlight shines upon the leader. There is no credit for them; there is no glamour. This leader, however, invites constructive criticism of their techniques and gives their participants pride, but not pride for the leader, but pride in themselves for how they have grown. This leader evolves as a leader, as a person and impacts the world.
