Categories: Leadership


The misconception of expecting leadership only from the people who have power and authority, or in other words, expecting power or authority to demonstrate leadership, prevents the potential of communities from being revealed. In order to understand how leadership is formed, I believe we need to consider those who come forward as leaders and how the followers engage with them.

With the experience of PMI Leadership Institute Master Class (LIMC), there was a “wow” point for us when we realized leadership is a journey, in other words, a process - initiated, executed and handed over. As a group of LIMC colleagues, we feel we need to share our thoughts with the community through this Servant Leadership, Serve to be Great blog.


I am part of this exciting blogger team mainly to encourage and inspire the readers to initiate their leadership journey and to discuss what tools they need to carry with them to achieve their purpose. You may expect that the colorful diversity of the bloggers will bring great examples of leadership from different cultures.
