Well, yes, you were the leader. You made the call, and you made it loud enough that people were willing to heed you.
We have to abandon the idea that leaders tell others what to do, that leaders have to be in charge; rather, leaders are those who encourage others to get up and move from where they are—perhaps to some place better, though often not—still, to some place new. And this call can be negative, as when Rosa Parks was just too damned tired to move to the back of the bus in Montgomery, Alabama. The simmering civil rights movement heeded her call and responded, spawning many other leaders, some even greater than she.
Well, okay, you may not be in charge of Rhizo14, but you are the leader. It’s good.
