Extreme Leadership

"An extreme leader is somebody who is really acting as a leader beyond their position or their title. True leadership is about the act of transformation. Somebody who's really leading is involved in changing their piece of the world for the better in some way, shape, or form.

They might be involved in trying to change the whole world for the better, and I say that's terrific for people that have that level of influence.

But for the rest of us we're involved in changing some piece of the world. It could be the world of our team, the world of our company, the world of our industry, the world of our customers, but there's some intent to look around the environment and make it better.

The person who steps up to do that, and enlists other people to help to do what it takes to make that kind of change happen is what I call the extreme leader."
