Lead, Follow or Get out of the Way!

I solemnly swear to be the best Follower I can be because I don’t have a clue how to Lead. I will do so until I am shown the door and told to Get Out of the way!

Nice I headline to start today’s blog. I didn’t make that up either.( As in just like the headline I didn’t make up yesterday if you are new to my blog).

It comes via a friend from Thomas Paine one of the founding fathers of the gold ole USA and can be found in his paper ” The Crisis”

It is a fitting metaphor that political writers use when political leaders are in over their head and decide to be followers rather than leaders.

Our current and soon to be deposed Premier Christy Clark finds herself in a “Crisis” of her own making in that rather than doing the things she promised to do when she ran to be the leader she chose to be a follower of her people in Cabinet.

These would be the same people who created the mess that she had the opportunity to show leadership on when she first became Premier un-elect.

So now, as the quote says she will likely be told to get out of the way.

How long do you think it will take?
