A pathway to humble leadership: 3 simple steps

first_imgI have a long history with the Boy Scouts of America. I am an Eagle Scout and have held a lot of leadership positions in the organization, both on a local and national level. and I worked on summer camp staff for several years. My best friends in the world are those I made through my involvement with Scouting.The caption for the photo above is a quote from the founder of the Order of the Arrow, a service organization in the Scouts. The purpose and sole duty of “Arrowmen” is to serve others. It’s as simple as that. There are a variety of ways to serve, too many to discuss here. Suffice to say that every action, project, or work should be tied back to that very simple goal: to serve others.People lead organizations from all demographics, age groups, creed, race, and backgrounds. The vast majority of these leaders are good at their jobs. Some could use an ego adjustment. A few fall into the category of “servant-leaders.”The concept of “Servant-Leadership” is catching on. Organizations that use the philosophy often enjoy the best productivity, highest profits, and lowest turnover of employees. As a leader, who wouldn’t want those things? continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

In 2007, when he committed to USC as a senior in high school, Washington did not meet entrance requirements and was forced to spend a year at Compton’s Thurgood Marshall School before enrolling at USC in 2008.Washington joins the laundry list of USC personnel that will be gone for the start of the 2009 season. The Trojans lost starters Daniel Hackett, Taj Gibson and DeMar DeRozan to the NBA draft, and former coach Tim Floyd resigned in June amid rumors of his connection to an ongoing NCAA investigation. Only senior guard Dwight Lewis returns for the Trojans as a starter in 2009.If Washington meets the academic requirements, he will be able to return to action by January, near the start of the Pac-10 season.last_img read more
