— A Shot is a poignant leadership tip from “a rifle.” Yes, leadership coach, Tom Newhouse, uses a rifle from his farming heritage to “tell it like it is.” —
“I HAVE A DREAM!” A rifle killed the man who said that. Makes me sick! My kind can be good tools, and yet bad ones too—used badly, that is. But, I wander…dream’n is the topic. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had an immense dream. It was his, and he believed it so deeply that he acted on it in times of adversity. He led with his dream, and that was contagious! He led others.
To be the leader, you need a dream (or a vision), and it has to be yours, such that you pursue it when adversity strikes. If it’s not yours, the dream will falter, and so will your leadership.
