My philosophy of leadership is the accomplishment of goals (vision) through others. It is the ability to help individuals or organizations surpass themselves and their abilities and to motivate them to exceed and succeed in their personal as well as the organizations goals. I believe a leader develops visions for his or her organization and a roadmap on how to get there. A leader views roadblocks only as hurdles and overcomes them and continues on and remains on course. A leader must get commitment on the visions with others in the organization so all travel the same road. The traits to be a leader are the same ones our friends from the Wizard of Oz went in search of: heart or compassion like the Tin Man; brains or wisdom like the Scarecrow; and, courage to make decisions like the Lion. And finally, like Dorothy, to have faith in yourself.
