Showing up …

Sometimes leadership comes from the simplest starting points.

A colleague was organising a team social event.  With only 5 people in the team, she made a decision to choose a venue, a date, a theme, and to book it … and then let all team members know (and hope, of course, that they’d like her choice).  It really wouldn’t have been much of a majority vote if she’d chosen, say, 3 options, and we’d all stated our preferences.

And she was right.  She made a decision.  Her leadership showed up.

Perhaps small, perhaps not too significant, but I loved it.
