A Defining Quality of a Leader

A lot of times, we're led to believe that leaders are limitless, fearless beings with nothing more than a dream and a will to see that dream come true. It's always easy, amidst the glitz and glamor that sometimes accompanies public leadership, to forget that leaders are not solo acts. Remember: there are no solo acts. All of us - all of them - need help. Leaders are just those that are quicker to ask for it.

That's my take in this short video. I share a story of my daughter asking for help when putting blocks together. Hopefully it can remind all of us that we're not individuals trying to make it on our own. We're incomplete teams trying to find our mates so we can play this great game of life together.
