The First Rule of Leadership

Michael J, Fox says it best:

“That’s the first rule of being a leader . . . just put your ego aside and find people that are smarter than you.  I found they exist in groves.”

Who do you know who has some expertise that you can tap into if you put your ego aside?  In chartering a new Rotary Club, made up mostly of young professionals, I am so in awe of the skills and their potential.

My young professionals have said yes to the “Service Above Self” way of life, to the 4-Way Test, and to doing great works in the world.   The first rule of leadership is alive and well at the Rotary Club of Greater Des Moines.
