A leader is…

“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.”

p10 quoting John Maxwell, Paula Jorde Bloom (2009) Leading the way: tips & tools for effective programme management The Space 15, Autumn 10-11

Jorde Bloom then adds: “if you inspire others to dream more, learn more, and do more, then you too are a leader.” [but I haven’t noted down if she was still quoting…]


About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
