Recently scrolling down the playlist in my iPod, Michael Jackson’s, ‘Man in the Mirror’, caught my eyes. I hadn’t played it in awhile, so why not? I’m aware of the controversies surrounding the life and death of Michael, but I can’t deny the fact that the song has some very valid leadership lessons. I learn from everything and anything:-)
“If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and then make that change”, streamed down my ears. How often do we blame the world for our bad choices? Or blame the government, our family, boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse, children…for the change that we desire and have failed to experience?
Leadership is YOU. Start with YOU. Someone once said, “Things have to change in you, before things change for you”. Michael’s a thriller any day!
