Part 2 to follow

Are You A Leader or A Follower

When leaders make a mistake, they say, "I was wrong."

When followers make mistakes, they say, "It wasn't my fault."

A leader works harder than a follower and has more time;

a follower is always "too busy" to do what is necessary.

A leader goes through a problem;

a follower goes around it and never gets past it.

A leader makes and keeps commitments;

a follower makes and forgets promises.

A leader says, "I'm good, but not as good as I ought to be;"

a follower says, "I'm not as bad as a lot of other people."

Leaders listen;

followers just wait until it's their turn to talk.

Leaders respect those who are superior to them and tries to learn something from them;

followers resent those who are superior to them and try to find chinks in their armor.

Leaders feel responsible for more than their job;

followers say, "I only work here."

A leader says, "There ought to be a better way to do this;"

followers say, "That's the way it's always been done here."

How about you? Are you a Leader or a follower
